Typography Journal Page

Here is my journal page from the Wanderlust 2019 January lessons on typography .  I've combined  Eliza's Mini Art Jar with Athanasia's composition ideas.  I thought the typography theme was fitting for my uncle-in-law Joe who was a newspaper publisher.  









 Materials:
*Lots of Tim Holtz products, both old and new--grunge board letters, paper doll and word strips,Salvage stickers, Bungled Sage distress ink
*Wendy Vecchi's Lower Case Art rubber stamps from Stamper's Anonymous
*Melody Ross (Brave Girls Club) typewriter graphic
*Sticko letter circle stickers
*typography dictionary page strips for background
*acrylic paints
*black ink and Sharpie
*sequin waste for circle stencil

Wonderful collage with much yellow in the background! Your details are gorgeous, I like the letters you cutted from a newspaper fitting perfect to your theme about your uncle-in-law Joe as he was a newspaper publisher, cool!
Thank you very much for linking to Art Journal Journey where my theme is yellow! Rike

I had intended to get here sooner, because I LOVE your art, but couldn't leave comments until now, Unfortunately life got in the way, and I am sorry for getting here so late.

One of the things that always strikes me about your art is your color sense. That might sound weird since this seems to be a color challenge this month at Art Journal Journey. However, I really like how you limited your palette to green, brown, and yellow.

I'm also impressed with your amazing composition. The background goes so well with the various embellishments and focal images. This is a stunning entry, and I am thrilled you chose to share it with us using Rike's theme at Art Journal Journey.
