TYPOGRAPHY

Typography what does it mean, words and phrases. The background to these 2 journal pages are made from words and phrases cut from magazines, they are all black and white, glued to the pages using Claudines "extra time slow-dry medium". You may still be able to see some of the words but I covered them with watered down gesso. Using 2 of my large "Crafters Workshops"stencils I sprayed with Ranger Color Wash in Cranberry and Stream. Before spraying I stamped in black some of Tims "Spills and Splatters" and "Slight Alterations" also the wording "embrace imperfections" I have journaled on one of the pages in the swirls but it may be difficult for you to see on the photo. I also have a positive and negative effect on the pages as when I sprayed through the stencils I then turned them over on to the next page to use up all the ink. If you like my pages be sure to leave me a comment they are well appreciated.
