Today’s tip is all about alphas! I love, love fun, funky alphas. When I was a paper scrapper I would find fun fonts, print out my titles and then cut them out with an exacto knife. I am thankful for digital now! I love finding fonts or alphas to spice up my layouts. Here are some layouts I found in the gallery for some added inspiration…
Using an alpha and layering it on an element or scatter
Mixing it with a font…
Wrapping a ribbon through the alpha
Adding an element for one of the letters
How about creating your own alpha or sticker?
You can do this by adding a stroke to your font, clipping a paper to it or even giving it a slight shadow…remember though words don’t float on real pages so very small shadow. You can also make the letters pop by adding an inner glow, changing the color of the shadows…experiment with it and have fun. CTRL Z will undo any problems unlike paper scrapping.
Also using elements for alphas…puzzle pieces, banners, balls and more
What are some of your favorite ways to use alphas? We would love to see your layouts!
