This website decoration used Alpha Beads. I think I went a bit too far!!! The green and goldish colours reflect the website colours but overall it does make you look doesn’t it? Lining-up so many Alphas was a bit of a pain so I will look for other ways to do this although I think they may be best for less text.
Also in the picture are Book Cover (with a little Cracked Paint on the cover). The tree clip-art in the background has a little Chalk Texture added.
For the punctuation elements, since the script will center it (which looks odd in the end), you can choose the option for “custom design” and place the punctuation mark where it would belong (higher for the apostrophe, lower for the period).
