One-hour challenge: Outlined titles

Letter stickers are a fabulous way to create fun titles that really stand out, but every so often you might find yourself without the letters you need. A creative option to try is to use your leftover packaging from your favorite letter stickers to create fun a fun outline title.

1.       Draw title on layout using the negative spaces of letter packaging as a stencil.

2.       Trace over letters using a darker pen to make the title stand out.

Go On, Make a Splash by Kim Watson as seen in the July/August 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine, page 21.

Your challenge today is to give this technique a try! If you don't have any letter sticker backings, you can create the same effect with

  • Stencils
  • Traced die-cuts
  • a stroke around your letters in Photoshop
  • Outline fonts

 Good luck!

I've been wanting to try this since I saw Kim's lo in the mag!  Thanks for giving me the boost to get it done!!  :)  I used the negatives from some MME chipboard letters...amazingly I still had two "a's" left, so I thought it would be fun to use those too.

Not sure if this will count...I outlined my stamped words, and my die cut title is layered with an outline!

Here is the link
