I've been checking out vintage typewriters on eBay and am hoping to get one for Christmas ;-) (...yes I subscribed my husband to this blog...). I always use my own printing but I do love the typewriter look when I see it on layouts. So I tried using a typewriter font on my computer and printed it on to cardstock.
After putting it all together, it just wasn't working for me. Too busy, didn't look right, it's not the perfect typewriter font and I took it off. So here is my first attempt with adding a typewriter look to document the lessons:
Here is a look at the revised version using journal tags from a Studio Calico Project Life kit. I think I like this better, seems less busy to me. Also a little trick I learnt from Amy Tangerine is to use a Fiskars Fingertip Detail Knife to trace the bottom half of the heart (granola bar photo) so that I could slide the photo underneath. I didn't want to cover up the heart and now it looks like an embellishment.
Sorry about the quality of the photos; I'm taking them at night in my office and tried to make them as clear as possible. So next I have my photos and lessons ready for Day 3 & 4. Looking forward to sharing those with you.
I rarely go back and make changes to layouts once their done, but I just couldn't walk away from this one today. How about you? Do you ever go back and make changes?
Thanks again for dropping by and have a fabulous day :-)
