Hello friends. It’s Ursula
sharing today about how to incorporate important documents into your pages.
There are lots of ways to go about this but I’ll share a little about how I did it in the project below.
I recently recieved this letter from my daughter that deeply touched my heart. My daughter has been going through some difficult things for a while now and there has been tension in the family. This letter seemed like a real turning point for all of us and I was so grateful that I wanted to solidify the memory in a page for our family albums.
As it turns out, Madison writes very, very small, and in a font that can be hard for the untrained eye to decipher. So, instead of using the original, I opted to type the page into Microsoft Word and size it to fit with the photo I had planned to use.
This offers a few benefits: it is easy to read, it’s the size I want, and it’s on the paper I want to use.
Another approach can be to scan and resize items in photoshop or a similar program. After you get it sized appropriately, simply print it out and add it to your page. (I tore mine also, to get a a bit of interesting shape.)
Since this project brought so much joy, focusing on the rainbow stripes seemed the perfect fit. I kept the design relatively simple so that the letter itself would stand out more.
