A first on my blog today, a Journal page! I am entering this into March's challenge on The Artistic Stamper Creative Team blog challenge. The theme is 'letters, words and numbers', so you can see where I got the idea for the words from.
The inspiration for the letting and the curves was from a recent workshop run by Jennie Boxall at The Artistic Stamper, which I went to. Jennie had taken part in a workshop previously taken by artist Joanna Sharpe where she showed her pencil lettering technique to form letters.
To start my Journal page I drew the curved lines. I then followed Joanne's technique to form the letters/words. I started by creating the three main words - letters, words and numbers.
I then added more letters and numbers to the page to fill in spaces decides the words. I masked off the letters/numbers, as shown below, so I could stamp above and below the lines.
The stamp set I used were numbers was Numerical Plate and words from Encyclopaedia Botanica. Both stamp sets are by The Artistic Stamper. I used Distress Inks to stamp with and also to colour-in my drawn letters and numbers. The coloured I used were Peacock Fathers, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry.
