This week's lesson will be going over how to use proper fonts and multiple fonts in your siggies. You can make a beautiful siggy, but if no one can read it to see the names, or oh-so-inspired saying in it, you and the requester can get frustrated. I know finding a font to match what you make can be difficult, but using the same font(s) over and over can get tiring and throw off your siggies. I know you may love that curly swirly frilly script font, but sometimes it just won't match the siggy, no matter how you may want it to. There are no lessons over fonts, so I'll give you my tips, and you can use those and the CC you get on your original.
You don't have to stroke, bevel, and shadow all the text in your siggy. Things like birthdays and sayings can be put under or above the elements in your siggy with nothing added to them. By doing this you cut down on some of the clutter in your siggy, and put the focus on the names or any important wording.
Use more than one font. Use a decorative font and a plain font together. Again it cuts down on the clutter and helps you place you emphasis. Same with color. For the wording you want emphasized (like a name) use your color picker and select the main color or a complimenting color and use your decorative font. Then for the birthday use a plain font like Times New Roman or Century Gothic in a gray.
If a font is so tiny or overly frilly that you would have trouble reading it if you didn't know what it said, chances are no one else can read it either. Thus... don't use it.
You need to use at least two fonts, and two colors for your font for this challenge.
