I would describe my style as very graphic. I like clean titles and frequently just use word art for my title. I will frequently use this little technique to spice up my word art. I like to use outlined titles. Some are created by our fabulous designers at Designer Digitals and other times I will create my own like I demonstrated in this tutorial.
I created this page today and I used a combination of word art from Katie Pertiet as well as Cathy Zielske. Katie's "Memories" was an outlined title. I created a new layer below the title. Then I sampled out the blue that was in my son's goggles with the color picker and I started coloring with a small brush. I was pretty sloppy with my coloring because I like it to spill over my letters for a water color effect. This is what my image looked like after I was done coloring.
I then reduced the opacity of my coloring to 25% and it gave the whole title a splash of color and more playful look. I thought it went well with my beach scene.
There are so many fun, little things you can do to a title. It certainly doesn't take much time to dress up word art. I hope you give this a try. I think you will like the effect.
