Get the look: Potter Perfection
10 April 2016
The Harry Potter books continue to inspire some great themed yearbooks full of magic and mischief this year and it’s a lot of fun to see how people have really introduced this theme with a lot of thought- a particular favourite of mine was the Chamber of Secrets Confessions page I saw in a book a few years ago now but editors are always coming up with fantastic new page creations!
So where to start? Well let’s look at your font selections first There are some lovely magical and old looking font options that work so perfectly for this kind of theme. Fonts like Diplomata SC, Bigelow Rules, Jim Nightshade ….
When it comes to creating your page, our parchment background is the best choice for you! You can also find these awesome scroll banners to embellish your title pages and add another dimension to your design in the clipart selection available in all books.
When you’re choosing colour schemes, you’ll probably want some nice earthy colours for parchment looks. Remember you also have black and white in addition to your palette choices
When it comes to cover designs, the Marauder’s Map has been a strong influence this last year. You can get the look using parchment style background, fonts mentioned above and a little creative drawing to map out your school grounds. Alternatively you can make a nice Hogwarts style crest using your school’s house colours and images which looks fab too!
