Text in digital scrapping is a key
element that is very important for titling and journaling. It can
also be lots of fun to create in your digital layouts.
LAYERS: Once you figure out what
layer the text should be on it will be easy to have your layouts
fool the eye into believing that they are authentic paper scrapped
In example A, we see mis-layered
text. Notice that the text is laying over the journaling strips
and the stitching.
Here again, in example B, the text
is mis-layered. The end of the title is layered over top of the
pointed edge border.
In paper scrapping, these things
would just never be seen - as they are not realistic. So, in
digital scrapping, it is really a good idea to label your text in
the following way.
In Example C, the text is layered
as it should be. Each line of text is on each journal tab
separately, the same way it would be if it were on real paper.
Notice that the title stays on the layer of the back ground paper.
Such small details, but they make a huge difference in your
digital realism. Also, be careful not to layer text over paper,
elements, shadows, etc. because this too will take away from the
realism you are trying to achieve in your layouts.
