Do you have a hard time coming up with a title for your layouts? I know I do have a hard time with creative titles for a page. I have a few tips for you today and even some examples from my team.
Alliteration is a fun and common way to create titles. When I looked back over my gallery I found that this was the one I used the most. Alliteration is a repetition of the initial consonant sound.
Some examples: Winter Wonderland, Baby Blues, Bulldozer Boys, Tool Time, Terrible Twos, Picking the Perfect Pumpkin, Moon Man, Super Star
Another way to add some excitement to a title is to substitute a letter or word with an element. You can put a basketball in place of the O in SHOOT….here some examples:
This first one uses Halloween Nights. Robin put the open mouth of the ghost in place of the O in Halloween.
This works in all languages. Henriett used the October Build a Kit pieces of mine and Designs by Snowlady to create this page. The translation of the title: Harvest-elves (instead of elf, there is that creation)
Here is one where the whole word is replaced with an element. I used a word art created as a freebie from one of my team members: Jenn.
Onomatopoeia is just as fun to say as it is to use on titles. Some examples would be: Splash, Squirt, Giggle, Growl, Bam, Bang, Clang, Clack, Honk, Oink, Quack Quack, Slurp, Zoom are just a few….
A few other ideas I have for you would be:
Personification….Bear Reads My Mind
Idioms: Jump Ship, Sweating Bullets
Similies and Metaphos: Busy as a Bee, Time is Money
Song Lyrics, Rhymes or Rhyming words all make great titles as well. Trying putting some of these together for a great title:
Boom Bang, Clash Clang (rhyming, onomatopoeia and alliteration)
Titles can be a lot of fun. Now that I have sparked your imagination what ideas do you have for creative titles? Share them with me and I will include them in a post on tomorrow’s blog! I would love to see your layouts as well!
