Like most people, sometimes I struggle to come up with clever and apt titles for my layouts. Especially when I've done the cliché ones many times over. You know what I mean...adorable, beautiful, family, today et cetera. *LOL* Here are 8 suggestions on how to choose titles for your layouts.
1. Describe the sound of something in the photo.
This layout was about my littlest nephew J playing with my toy car and the title aptly describes the sound he was making as he played.
2. Steal from a television show/movie.
This layout features my niece after her "makeover" by me...*LOL* so I stole the title from the show "How do I look?"
3. Use numbers.
I was drawing a blank here but I really wanted to use up my puffy number stickers so I titled it 123...*LOL* You can also use numbers for dates and age.
4. Use descriptive words.
Sometimes you just need a whole slew of descriptive words to describe a scene. Here, littlest nephew J was having a blast at the playground.
5. Use a phrase to describe what the photo reflects.
I was so happy to have captured this hearty toothless laugh of my niece so I used the first phrase that came to mind.
6. Name the prominent feature in the photos.
Sometimes you can be a little obvious in your title. *LOL*
7. Describe the place.
I looked at the photos of this restaurant I went to and instantly remembered "what a quaint little place it was..." [Of course, I had fond memories of this place because it was closed for the day when we went there but I looked pathetic enough for the chef to open the kitchen just for us. *winks*]
8. Use the name of the place.
Sometimes it can be as easy as naming the place your photos show. :)
