Hi everyone! Today I am sharing another art journal page for the August challenge over on Art Journal Journey which this month is Type chosen by this month’s lovely host, Neet. I made a few pages for this challenge because I really love TYPE and will be sharing them during the month.
This page started off with this selection of bits and pieces which I collaged into my journal. Above are some gel prints using two types of type, some fabric pieces, tissue paper, handmade paper, packaging, leftover paper scraps etc.
Question: what do I not like about using fabric in any situation?
Answer: having to iron it! No a fan of ironing!
Anyway, after having to iron the fabric pieces before adding them to my page with all the other pieces, I then added some white paint, before stamping START WHERE YOU ARE, DO WHAT YOU CAN using Worn Text stamps and black Stazon ink. This is part of the quote from the sticker that I also added to the page, with the woman using the typewriter.
Here’s a closer look at the sticker with the woman and the typewriter and the full quote… I’m not sure why this quote from an American tennis player is relevant to the image on the sticker but it works for me for this page, so I’ll take it.
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!
