Hello friends and happy Saturday! I have a page that I made two weeks ago at the same time as this one but due to illness I wasn’t able to get it uploaded and blogged about. I’m still not quite 100% but I am feeling a bit more human and glad to be up and about again. This is another page inspired by Type and Type is of course, the August challenge over on Art Journal Journey and chosen by this month’s host, the lovely Neet.
Here’s how it started off…
First I made my own stencil using various leftover diecut alphabet letters and sticking them all together on a frame made from an amazon box. The letters are all cut from a Felix cat food box.
Then I used my homemade stencil with some Distress Oxide sprays to cover the background of my page.
On top of that, I used some Tim Holtz stamps that have different fonts and stamped all over the background, some in dark brown Stazon ink and some in white Fresco Chalk paint.
I used the Sizzix/Tim Holtz embossing folder/texture fade called Type with some black cardstock to create my typewriter letters and stuck it down on the right side of my page on top of some leftover threads from another project.
The word stickers on the left side are some Prima/Finnabair quote stickers that I chopped up and assembled to say what I wanted it to.
Let’s see how long my cardboard stencil lasts, I’ve had good results with them before though this one is a little more delicate than some of the others.
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!Ingredients
