another week has flown past and that means it's time for a new Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have a real interesting one for you from Di. We want you to Just Add typography. By typography we mean " the style, arrangement or appearance of typeset matter". If you look for images of typography you will see lots of examples of text/words used to create an image. So that is what I set out to do.
I started by cutting a heart out of copy paper and using that as a mask through which I stamped my big 'love' sentiment, then I filled in the shape of a heart with lots of mix and match words. Then black embossed them all. I used the fine Project Life marker to hand draw in the outside heart shape. At this point I also stamped a few small Pink Pirouette hearts adjacent to the big typography heart just to add a little extra depth. Since this was going to be a wedding card I wanted to tone down all that black. A vellum overlay solved that issue and also meant I could add in lots of sequins, once I had sewn a border around the edge to keep them in. A little sentiment banner over the front finished it off. It's hard to capture the subtle sheen of the embossing and sequins through the vellum - but it does look great IRL!
Hope you can join in the fun this week. Do check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
