The beauty of the hand Inked font.

I designed this page for the class Process Play for Masterful Scrapbooking.

When planning this page, I thought I’d tackle it from a different angle. I knew I wanted to use a large, show-stopping hand painted title I’d seen on Pinterest by Kal Barteski. Her distinctive hand painted quotes have been trending in the art world for some time now. 

Being dominant and larger than my usual title sizes, it determined and influenced the division of the page and how I incorporated the other page elements, as well as the overall composition.

There is something to organic and authentic about the hand font in black like this to create a focal point.
