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!


watercolour paper, my usual journal, collage materials, gel prints, gesso, cardboard stencil, neocolors II, stabilo all, worn text stamp set, versafine clair ink, black pen, white pen, paint pen, gel medium,

The collage of type is a great background to begin a page for this TYPE theme. I love that bright intense pink. Since cats can sometimes refuse to get along together, I like that these two are just each other’s type. Your stamped type words in the pink are a purrfect detail for your page.

A fantastic page, you added so many great type fonts to the background and I loved how you added the words and those sweet pink cars. Thank you for linking with Neets theme over at AJJ.

I think it is wonderful. I loved all the different types of type you used in the first picture. I could spend ages looking at the different pieces. Then you went and put the words on in bright neon pink – wow, that really brought the page to life.
Being a cat lover how could I fail to fall in love with it and what a terrific sentiment you made – ‘Meow cat purrs you’re my type’. Love it!
Thanks for joining in and the lovely words you wrote.
Hugs, `Neet xx

What a fun, fun post. I love all the various fonts you chose, too. This is lovely and absolutely perfect for Neet’s theme at Art Journal Journey. Bleubeard gives it two paws up, too!

This pink kitties are adorable Elle. And I like all your types of type. You used type 2 ways, types of type-smile. This is a super page for Neet’s challenge, and I’m glad you joined us. Can’t wait to see what else you’ve made. Hugs-Erika
