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.

    I am a stencil addict & really love “Stencil Girl” stencils. I’m from the generation that actually used typewriters & took typing classes in High School ( no self-correcting like word programs theses days ). I think this would be fun to use in journaling about those early days in my life. Your are soooooo colorful. Hope other hoppers have good ideas.

    Another fabulous stencil :) I too remember the old typewriters…which I had been smart enough back then to keep one! Your page is awesome as usual – full of color and texture. It doesn’t get any better than that!
