Contrast is vital

I love ornate words. The one thing that always bothered me is when the words are so fancy that you can't read the quote! In this lesson, we'll explore CONTRAST, which is vital to make those ultra fancy tangled letters and words legible so your quotes can be read clearly. Contrast comes in a variety of ways, and there are so many tricks that you can use to make your words really understood.

"I love the letters, they're great! But I really love the layers of shading and highlighting you showed for both the letters and especially the background."

"One fun thing about creating these is that you are just using your own printing as the base letter. Each one is individual as the person's own handwriting."
