Above is my first attempt. We are using Mystery of History Volume 2 this year and I wanted a page about the Colosseum. I saw pages made by Heartwork in Progress and was going to use them, but thought I'd try to make my own so I can use them for any topic. Basically, when using Word, you insert text boxes to fill with photos, lines (I just hold the underscore key down), and the title. If you right click on the frame of the text box, you can vary the thickness of color of your border.
And, on this one, Alex changed the style of the WordArt and the font and I found out how to add shadows. The shadows are on the WordArt toolbar at the bottom of Word and are green with various shadows.
I have made several other pages and really like this one as I added a photo of Alex taken in front of a piece of the Berlin Wall which we took at a museum. I love how you can really personalize these pages!!! I'm excited to do more pages and am already working on a few more for next week.
