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...


  1. Love, love, love these! Just been looking back at your last two posts too- inspirational! - I haven't had much heart for anything journalwise for a while but today I may sit and start an alphabet. Thank you!

  2. Thank you so much - I am addicted now and have decided I will always have a grid on the go in my journal so I will play with that if my journalling mojo has vanished!:)
