I am working on an invitation for print and have been coming up short with a good way to incorporate text into the piece. Here is the background I am working with:
What I am trying to do is place text into the "free" space below the seal, but I haven't been able to find any good examples for incorporating text into a background with dots like this.
I tried simply carving out a space for the text, but that looked too unnatural. I also tried placing another seal/ribbon to contain the text, but that cluttered the page too much and I really want the focal point to be the seal. The text will be a quote/verse that is meant to compliment the rest of the piece.
Does anybody have any suggestions or examples where text has been worked into a pattern like this? Are there any standards or general guidelines for something along these lines? Thank you!
