Some of the dingbats/swirls I have on my computer and use often are Kfon, Nymphette, WW Floral Corner.
For example, here is the banner I created for Orphan Journeys:
You can see it on the top of Journey to Love.
Compare the new Orphan Journeys series banner to my former thought (which was...no banner).
How did I create the new and improved? Let me introduce you to my favorite "font," Nymphette. I probably overuse it, I like it so much!
First, I kept "Orphan Journeys" in the font Cinzel. Then, using good ol' font Times New Romans I placed a line on top and on bottom of my text (yeah, I could have just drawn a line, but this is just how I do things the hard way).
THEN, the fun part! I used Nymphette letters KL (capital, yes) to create the double swirl. Then, I copied those, flipped them horizontally, and here ya go.
It is simple, but adds so much! Here are a couple of other designs in which I've used Nymphette to embellish:
Do you have a link to something you've designed? Share it in a comment--I'd love to stop by and see it!
