Today I have two very different spreads for you. One is current, the other vintage.
This is a fun piece I thought up when I saw these young people in a magazine ad.
I spent a lot of time creating these words in my word processing program. Each word had a different fill pattern, but when I printed the page, the designs disappeared.
Still, not to be deterred, I added the labels from three crayons and a pencil with a now "defunct" eraser.
When the words didn't print with patterns, I tried to add my white Gelly pen, but it somehow refused to work properly on the ink, then quit working altogether.
Regardless, I'm still quite happy with the way this piece turned out.
Materials include a portion of an ad for an ink pen, three crayon labels, one pencil, and one sheet of yellow copier/printer paper with computer generated text. I can't really claim the white pen, since I couldn't get it to work properly.
For my second spread,
we're heading off to college where a vintage image
shows these lovely ladies from (what appears to be) the 1940s sitting on a campus wall displaying their bobby sox and loafers.
It's obviously their first day on campus.
Materials I used for this spread include a piece of scrapbook paper that reminded me of argyle socks, an image from the internet, green variegated thread, computer generated text, and matching letters I outlined in black pen.
Thanks for joining Bleubeard and me today and don't forget to join us at Art Journal Journey where we're heading Back to School with our write stuff and bobby sox and loafers.
