Hi everyone and happy Monday! I hope everyone has a great week. 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. For Type I used two types of people, one light and one dark, facing each other, with backgrounds containing many different typefaces and old fashioned devices (I’m pretty sure one of them is a printing press of some kind). This page is also intended for the current Sandee and Amelie’s Steampunk Challenge which is their final challenge as they will be closing their doors after nine years. So many blogs are closing down, it makes me sad. : (
The background is made of different papers, light and dark, and some tissue paper with gears and cogs on it. I painted the people with Lumiere metallic paints, a mixture of gold and bronze on the left and black and pewter on the right and both edged with gold to highlight. I used some paper cord painted gold and tucked it under her head on the left and used black waxed linen thread and did the same thing on the right side. I did a bit of hidden journaling in black, writing in place and over what I had already written, splattered the rest of the paint around and then added these Tim Holtz word stickers (another kind of type) to each of them…
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading and have a great week!
