Trick My Mix - Fun with Type

Today's trick comes from a night of staying up late and experimenting with fun new ways to present the typed content of a book. Try these examples below in your own Mixbook! 1) ABC Type - this is what we call ABC type, because instead of typing regular content, you use letters to create a type of design on the page. This is how we got the look below:



- Choose a background and set it to 30% transparency (find this feature by clicking "more" in the background section of the Creator)

- Set the font to Cooper Black and the size to 45. Type the letters of the alphabet, or even use words related to the photo (see word example below).

- Change the colors of the fonts by highlighting selected text and clicking on the color palette to select a color. Then use your own eye to change the colors as you prefer.

2) Word Type - instead of using letters, use words to create a design.



How cool is that? We especially love this technique when it is used in a themed book. Change the words and the style depending on what your theme is (the book above was about a trip to Seaworld) - maybe use some of the following:

A book about France - Eiffel, Je t'aime, Oui, Ooh la la, Macarons, Croissant, Romantic, Love.

A book about your kids - Funny, Messy, Loud, Fun, Family, Sweet, Spunky, Caring, Loving, Imaginative, Creative, Youthful.

A book about your dog - Silly, Goofy, Playful, Curious, Cute, Lazy, Nosy, Cuddly, Fluffy, Puppy.

This is just one new way to make your Mixbook unique and interesting!
