This is my third post featuring some of my favorite fonts for journaling on scrapbook layouts. This time, I’ll share some–but definitely not all–of my favorite script fonts. If you are looking for serif or sans-serif fonts for journaling or text, check out my previous posts. And if you want tips on selecting journaling fonts and designing text on your pages, read this post: Principles of Page Design: Selecting Journaling Fonts.
Although there are lots of beautiful and artistic script fonts, selecting one for the journaling portion of a layout can be tricky. That’s because some script fonts can be illegible in large amounts. Fancy capital letters or long ascenders and descenders can distract the eye and slow down the reader. So, when selecting a script font for a large block of text or journaling, readability is my first consideration and artistic appearance comes second.
Because of all of the available script fonts out there, you’re sure to find one to match almost any event or emotion–a definite plus when designing a scrap page. For best results, I suggest testing out your chosen script font on your journaling after you’ve written it to see how it looks. If it is unreadable or even a little hard on the eye, switch to a different script font, adjust the line spacing or point size, or reduce the amount of text.
And now, let’s check out some of my favorite script fonts for text:
Coneria Script: Beautiful and elegant font that is easy to read.
