Creating Effective Newsletters: Tip 5—Add a Touch of Nature

Adding a hint of nature’s beauty provides an elegant way to spice up any newsletter. Try taking close-up photos of plants, leaves, trees, cactus, brush or just plain grass in front of your home. Then outline the plant or flower in Photoshop and add it behind a masthead or screened back behind a block of text. You can also convert these to vector art and simplify the shapes. (See sample below.)

Adding natural elements gives your newsletter a more “green” flavor and tends to show an environmental consciousness. Go ahead “green it up” a bit!
