Hi all, I have just posted a LO in the gallery that I need help with. The reason for the LO was to try to create an overlay, which I have done and I am quite happy with the result. However, I think it needs something more, like a title but am unsure what technique to use, what other embellishments it could use if any at all. Your thoughts and ideas would be muchly appreciated.

The overlay is gorgeous! A very simple title--not to draw attention away from the photo.

it's beautiful..you did a wonderful job with the overlay. If your looking for a title idea, so not to take away from your overlay you could try a script font and just write a simple 1 word title in the lower corner of the photo.

It looks gorgeous, great job! If you wanted to put a title or writing, I would do it in a really scripty font of the same color along the top, so that it blends in with the rest of the overlay, and looks like it is part of it. Beautiful LO!

This is really beautiful! Great job. The only thing I can think of is a ribbon across the top left corner (imagine if you dog eared the page just a little, and put the ribbon right where that crease would be) and put a little tag hanging from it saying Free Spirit or whatever you want your little title to be.

Hmm, "little, little, little." Looks like my subconscious is telling me you don't need much to complete it. :ninja: :)

I also believe it's beautiful as is. If you really want a title, I would suggest a cursive font on a small tag fastened with a very little bow in the upper left corner.

Thanks everyone for your very supportive comments and great ideas. I agree that less is more with this one, so I might play around with the tag idea or realign some of the brushes so that I can fit a script font title in more easily. Will post updated version.
Once again thanks for your help, you girls are awesome.

This is my updated version. As you can see I have added some script, by making it less busy at the top. TFL
