Decorate your newsletter with clip art, photos, and borders.
Now comes the fun part: Jazz up your letter with decorations and pictures. Here are some ideas:
- Create a border around the page.
- Include a watermark or background image.
- Include some clip art.
- Insert a family photo and then add a border to it.
You'll see how to do some of this in the practice session. If you want more ideas for decorating your newsletter, check out the course Decorate documents with backgrounds, borders, and text effects.
Don't go over the top with decorations; you still want people to be able to read the text. Consider how you're going to print the letter (if you're printing it at all—or is it going to be e-mailed?), and don't overload it with colored graphics if you're working with a basic home color printer.
