Welcome to the March Font Challenge.


Our font for this month is Alex Brush . You can find it HERE (http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/alex-brush) or HERE (http://www.fontspace.com/typesetit/alex-brush)

ETA: I have listed 2 places you can find the free Alex Brush font. The first link I had originally wanted you to download browser, etc before you could get the font. So sorry about that. I removed that one and have listed two other sites where that is not necessary.

The Challenge is to use the Alex Brush font either in a title or in your journaling. Please make sure the font is clearly visible on your layout.

The rules for the challenge :
(1) Your layout must be unique, and can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the March Scrappin' 7 Challenge.
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Font Challenge Gallery HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=641).
(5) Come back here and post the image of the page you created, and link it to your page in the gallery so we can all leave you some love!

There will be a bonus for all who particiapte in this challenge by posting and linking their creations here. Please be sure to credit the designer's kit/s when you post to the gallery.

This challenge runs through March 31st.

Do you all know how to link your images back to the gallery? .. If not, have a look HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/LinkingAGalleryLayout/LinkingAGalleryLayout.html)

Also... here's (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/GDS_Why_Go_Digital/KeywordsAndProductLinks/KeywordsAndProductLinks.html) how to assign keywords to your layouts to give the credit back to the designer.

Diane, such a soft and haunting layout. Love that you kept everything in the pastel/smoky hues so the photos weren't over-shadowed. Beautiful page. So glad you could play along this month. :love-smiley-011:

BTW... in order to receive credit for it - you need to post it into the FONT GALLERY as shown on post 1 of this thread. That is where I look to verify that everyone has met the requirements for the challenge. It is posted into your personal GDS Challenge album. Thanks so much.

Am looking forward to trying this font out as it looks like it is very versatile. :biggrin: Will be back soon with a layout.
