Mix & Match Designs: How it Works, part 2

In part 2 of the mix & match design series I'll show you how you can combine two motifs in your mix & match design suite! (keep in mind, your mix & match design order includes one motif, and you can add a second motif for $5)

The examples below illustrate how two motifs can be combined in your stationery. Since this approach will work better with some motifs than others, choosing motifs with the same graphic style would be recommended. For example, motifs be-007 and be-009 would combine nicely for a beach themed design. However, because of the contrast of style, motifs tr-019 and tr-022 would not coordinate as well.

In this second mix & match example, Serif Font 1 and Ornate Script 2 are used, along with combinations of miscellaneous motif mis-023 and transportation motif tr-001. The example is shown in the colors Marigold and Slate.

The following example shows how you can achieve different styles by varying the placement and size of the motifs. The text layouts in each option are also slightly different, to show that something as simple as adjusting the alignment or orientation can have an impact on the look of your design. 
These layout options also show the variations you could expect in your first proof for a mix & match order. Your first proof for a mix & match design will consist of 2-3 layout options for the designs ordered, using your chosen design elements. You'll then have the opportunity to request revisions to the options, or approve a design.

Have any questions? Feel free to contact me at sarah[!@] Or if you're ready to order, you can start off by reading through the mix & match design process, then pick out your colors, fontsmotifspatterns, and borders, and finally, fill out the mix & match order form.

Make sure to check back tomorrow for part 3 in the mix & match design series, where I'll go over a few of the ways you can incorporate a pattern and border in your design!
