Alphabets and phrases - inspiration from 30 Days In Your Journal - continued
The alphabet was drawn on a grid and, after decorating it with everything I have, was scanned.
I realised that I can now play around with the scanned alphabet.
First I used Enhance, Adjust Colour, Adjust Hue/Saturation in Photoshop to give me a green hued font and a blue hued font.
This gave me two new alphabets as well as the really colourful one that I made first.
For the monochrome version I used Convert to Black and White then selected Vivid Landscapes to get it as contrasty as possible.
The spread, right, uses the original coloured font to prepare pages for journalling - I really like the effect and it makes it very personal....
Then finally I have made another grid and this time used it for days of the week, months of the year and the seasons, so I have ready made phrases which I can also scan and modify on the computer, and print out and collage into my journal...
