This opens the Color Menu with Premade Settings for Color Saturation, Color Tone and Recolor. Select the Washout Icon from the Recolor Section.
This will change the Color of this Flower to Gray. It would seem that we are unable to make this Flower appear White as in the Microsoft Publisher 2010 version of this Tutorial.
You'll have to Repeat this step 3 times in order to Recolor the other 3 Black Flowers, as you are unable to select Multiple Images at the same time.
Your Flyer should look something like this.
The Title Font is called Days by Alexander Kalachev.
You can download both Free Fonts from Fontsquirrel.com.
For a newly downloaded Font to be usable on your machine, you must first install it. Any Font installed while an older version of Microsoft Word is open, will not be visible in the Font List.
To correct this, you must first restart the Microsoft Word program after Font(s) installation. If you are using version 2013 and up then you do not need to restart the program after Font Installation.
For more information on Fonts and how to properly install them, visit the FlyerTutor Blog.
To Insert Text draw a Text Box on the Flyer. You'll see a Flashing Cursor. Type the Word "Happy".
The Text will be very small. Double click over the Text to select it.
In the Font Group of the Format Tab select the down arrow on the Right side of the Font Box, and select the Days Font from the Font List.
Next to the Font Box is Font Size.
Select 36 from the list that appears and see the change made to the Text.
Remember to set the Text Box Outline to No Outline.
With the Text selected, click the Text Fill Icon from the WordArt Styles Group.
Select the Orange from our Recent Colors.
See the applied Text Fill.
Next, in the WordArt Styles Group, select the Text Effects Icon.
From the Text Effects Menu, select Glow > Glow Options.
This opens the Format Shape Pane to the right.
Again select the Custom Orange Color, set Size to 20pt and Transparency to 70%.
Each change will be immediately applied.
Type the remaining Title Text in separated Text Boxes and change their Fill Colors. Make these Text Boxes Transparent. Then apply the Glow Settings to each.
Now here is your Multicolored Glow Title.
As you type, in both cases you'll notice that the Text is Aligned Left. Select all the Text that you wish to Align, then click the Align Center Icon from the Paragraph Group of the Home Tab. The Text will then be Centered.
You do not have to select the Text to adjust the Line Spacing. Just click anywhere inside the Text Box and select the Line Spacing Icon from the Paragraph Group.
Select Line Spacing Options from the drop down menu.
This opens the Paragraph Window.
In the Spacing Section set After to 0pt and Line Spacing to Multiple At 1. Then click OK to see the change.
And there you have it. You've created this simple but beautiful Mother's Day Flyer 3 using Microsoft Word.
All that's left to do is Save the File.
This opens the Save As Window.
Choose where you wish to Save your File. You have the option to Save to OneDrive (Microsoft Cloud Storage), your Computer, or Add a Location on the Cloud.
To Save to your Computer, select Computer > Browse. You are then taken to another Save As Window.
Once you've located the area where you wish to save your file, give it a Name and click Save.
If you are new to Microsoft Word 2013, I hope this tutorial shed some light on some of the many functions of the Microsoft Word 2013 Interface.
