    Is everyone ready for week 2 of TYPOGRAPHY!!!! I love layered textures, colors, fonts, interest. It always captures my attention! This week you can do another quote, mantra, motto, or whatever is in your heart that needs to come out. You don't need to explain it if you don't want to but show me contrast, show me layers.... BUT NO SHADOWS!!!!

    WEEK 1: layer upon layer
    1. I created a Pinterest Inspiration Board for you, I will keep adding items and if you find a good one to add link me and I will!
    2. Use this maybe for your mantra, quote, motto or just the words you need to hear right now, it could also be image base but MUST use a font somewhere.
    3. NO SHADOWS! No exceptions! You know I am usually super uber flexible with the rules, NOT THIS ONE, ok? You will survive!
    4. I want to see contrast on color or textures or both.

    I created another inspiration board in Pinterest for you to go and look, enjoy and get inspired! CHECK IT OUT HERE (or you can click the image below).

    @Dalis - hope I understood the instructions correctly. If not, please let me know. The texture is from the papers and color from paints. No shadowing but I did use a stroke on "single" so it could be seen better.

    @Dalis Quick question: are we to make "pages" or just graphic text? If pages, what if objects are included- no shadow on those as well? THANKS!

    Think of it as a "POSTER" no shadows!

    I did two. The first one:

    The second one didn't come out the way I envisioned, so I added a shadow.
