Do you always put a title on your art? Or do you sometime choose to make a layout or an Art Journal without a title? Sometimes I choose not to use a title because I want other things on the page stand out and catch your eye.

I have two drawers full of Thickers that I love love love. I have bought them to use as titles but lately I have noticed that I choose to make art without titles.

I think the reason is that I want the focus of the art to stay at the image or the focal point and I do not want the title to compete for the attention. A bold title can add so much interest to a page and sometimes it can be a piece of art on its own.
But in the end, I keep choosing not to add the traditional title. Instead, I like to add lots of text and phrases that take less visual focus but still tell a story or state a situation or attitude.
So, what about you? Do you always add a title to your art?
