I designed this stencil because I love typewriters. When I grew up I had this gigantic old office typewriter from the 40s which I used to write my first novel on. The novel never made it to more then 11 pages, when it was replaced by a new idea- but anyway- I loved my typewriter. I am also one of those people that learned proper blind typewriting and I am quite quick and good at it – LOL. I bought a nice old one at a flea market and it must weigh a thousand pounds. There is a lot I connect with typewriters: vintage, office, notes, letters, work, messages….
Check out some samples I did already here:
Here is what I created for today:
It is a crazy art journal page ;) I do love to use random pages in my art journal and scrape off leftover paint, try out on an small area a little technique and often times I get this huge dimension and depth in a background which is ready to finish. I used the typewriter Stencil with some acrylic paint that stenciled through onto some marbleized paper.
I cut out the typewriter – added a slid through which I put a piece of canvas with with a “note to myself” tag and then mounted it on small 3D Foam Pads. The journaling reads “Seriously don’t take others or yourself too serious!”
I also love using the typing keys of the typewriter by itself for mark making -and you can see I did it throughout the spread but also around the pages as a frame.
Here are the supplies I used:
Now hop on over to my friends and check what they did and comment for some changes to win the stencil :)
