Typography with StencilGirl® and Art Joy of Sharing Collaboration

Hello and welcome. Thanks for the visit. Today we are talking about Typography.

For this month Shel worked on using kraft colored handled gift bags to create wall art. Of course, they can be used as gift bags as well...but they hang up on the wall so easily with just a thumbtack! 

She used a gel plate to make some monoprints onto thin papers with 'coffee and tea color' paint like Sienna and Umber. She used the stencils Alpha Jumble Large and Letter Mania for the prints. 

Next, she collaged and layered different gel prints into a square on the front of the bag for an interesting and graphic background. 

To create the focal image, Shel used the ordered alphabet half of the Alpha Jumble Large stencil to make words that related to coffee like Latte, Americano, Expresso. She cut out the paper into a coffee shape and glued it over the background. After some shading and highlights with some pens, the piece was done and ready to hang!

Today Peg is working on a journal made from the backside of napkins or serviettes. In this blog post, she is also sharing a stepped-out video tutorial that shows how the cover is created.

Peg says, "I peel off the plain paper and use the pretty prints for collage but do not wish to discard all of that tissue, so I needed a plan to use it up. A bit of topstitching and embellishment and my cover is complete. Then I simply stitch in a signature from stenciled watercolor papers."
