We survived Easter! Can you believe it?
And now we’re off to races with the Spring Parade of events and holidays. First up, we’ve got Mother’s Day. As usual, there are a lot of decisions to be made for your Mother’s Day service, so hopefully this blog will help you with one of them – selecting your worship slide designs.
Stripes across your image, whether used to accent or in the background, are in right now so why not have fun with them? I used the Wildflower 6 background from Life Scribe Media. Added three more text boxes, stretched them to look like the top three stripes, filled them with color and adjusted opacity to around 40%. Then I filled in the actual text box I’m using with color as well and adjusted opacity to 40% as well. This takes the floral background and gives focus for the text as well as adding some texture to the design.
Another way to work with a floral background is to place a contrasting text box over it. By taking something delicate and placing something stark on top of it, you’ll be able to make the background pop. For this inspiration, I took some of the designs that were already in this collection and adapted it for my own. This uses the Radiant Flowers 02 Still by Centerline New Media. I then added a stark white box on top of the background, by adding an additional text box, adjusting the shape and then filling it in with a white color fill. For the font, I wanted something different from the pretty background. It helps the font stand out a bit too, so I’m using a font called Rock Salt, which you can download here. I think this is a fun design that pays homage to Mother’s Day without taking over your whole song design.
Let’s face it. The pinks and purples can get a little overwhelming at times. So, if you need a break, check out this Mother’s Day background by Dan Stevers. The moms will love the floral design and you will love the color variety. Again, I used the stark white square as a backdrop for the text, but I added an orange border to match the colors and feel of the background a bit more.
Also, I changed the font to Quicksand Medium, which you can download here. And then changed the color to a dark orange that matches the colors in the background. Overall, this is a fun designs for your song or even sermon slides that you can use when you just can’t stand to see any more pink. 🙂
