First day back at school, The (Not So) Small One arrived home early.
"Quick!" I said "I need help with A Beautiful Mess!"
She looked round at all the things I hadn't got done while she out.
"Throw some glitter on it, Mum," she replied. "You're half way there already."
But of course, what I was actually doing was playing around with some word apps on my phone. I've just downloaded A Beautiful Mess and I think I'm going to like it; but my longstanding favourite is Halftone. I've been using it for a couple of years now, ever since I discovered how easily it distracts the eye from a less than stellar photo. Or two. Or three. Halftone uses a comic book effect so it's one I always keep in mind for pages I hope will raise a smile:
There's the option to add a date, too, which can be as useful as any words sometimes. But watch out! It sounds obvious. It is obvious and that means I'm likely to miss it....
I love Halftone for cards too:
Great for personalised messages.
