Hi everyone! Today I have another art journal page for the August challenge over on Art Journal Journey which this month is Type chosen by this month’s host, the lovely Neet. I’m a little late posting this today as I am still monitoring my cat who wasn’t very well yesterday and still isn’t completely herself. Depending on how she is today, she might have to go back to the vet tomorrow : / So although this was finished, I didn’t get a chance to take any photos of it till today.
For this page I was inspired by the iconic quote from Pride and Prejudice, and one that I know by heart so it was easy to type it out on my old typewriter…
It’s pretty old and sometimes the keys stick, so there are a few typos but they are easy to fix with some Tippex or left alone for authenticity lol. Jane Austen wrote everything in long hand since she was writing a few decades before typewriters were invented.
The background of the page is made with embossed watercolour paper, using a damask pattern embossing folder and some crayons. I used a silhouette stamp of a lady and a gentleman who could have stepped out of a Jane Austen book perhaps. Then I die cut some typewriters, the big one is the newer Tim Holtz typewriter die, and the little one is an older Movers and Shapers die. I added my typewritten quote to the left hand page…
and I pieced together another tester version to the typewriter on the right hand page.
I painted my typewriters in teal using Neocolor IIs because that’s the colour of my own typewriter!
Let me know what you think in the comments and I wonder if anyone else has a typewriter? As always, thanks for reading!Ingredients
