Hi everyone, happy August! Today I am sharing an art journal page for the new August challenge over on Art Journal Journey which this month is Type chosen by this month’s host, Neet. I love this challenge and I started creating quite a few pages which I will share throughout the month. Here is the first page…
I used a lot of examples of different kinds of type and collaged them all to the page. Then I added these neon pink gel printed words which were leftover from some March projects – MEOW, CAT, PURRS, and then used one of my cardboard cat stencils to add the pink cats to each side. I coloured them in with Neocolors and outlined them with a black Stabilo and drew on some little faces. Perhaps they can be called Book Antiqua and Franklin Gothic like the typeface samples I used on the background? To finish off the page I added YOU’RE MY TYPE using some stamps and Versafine Clair ink in Chianti.
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!
