Archer Hairline

I'm sneaking in a layout for the current All About Challenge which ends today. (I know, I know, but the laundry!) The Design Team came up with an excellent theme - personality - and many of them chose to base their layouts on the results of personality profiles such as Myers Briggs. Whilst I do have several Myers Briggs stories to tell (the result of working in careers and training) I really wanted to create my little layout based on my results of the What's Your Type? quiz I found a while ago via How About Orange.

Archer Hairline

By taking you through a short series of questions (via a highly entertaining video, I might add) you are told which typeface suits your personality - and I came out as Archer Hairline. Once you've worked your way through the quiz yourself, you'll have the option to see the results and 'personalities' of other typefaces, so I won't spoil it by telling you what my results mean.

I've printed out a small sample of the typeface and added it to an old library card pocket and I've journalled about the results on a series of tags which I can hide away. Taking my inspiration from one of Tara Anderson's designs for the Something From (Almost) Nothing class, I've used several strips of scrap ribbon along the bottom of my layout and added a handmade ribbon rose. I love that the layout has a basic structure but that the ribbons break across the edges - a little like my personality type.

  3. I did that quiz a while back and now I can't remember what I was..which of course serves me right because I should have been smart enough to make a layout about it :) Lovely page.

  4. What a lovely layout. I'm jealous of your type, I was Perpetua Titling Light, which is boring (like me!) and only upper case. I tried the quiz again, making one justifiable change, but only got another upper case font. I did enjoy the video though.

  11. I love the idea of the quiz because I can never decide on a font. If one is "my" font, I'll never have to pick again! And what a beautiful page. Love your stitches!
