I’ve been blogging long enough now that you’d think I’d know how to use all of the features on this thing.
Nope, not so.
But here’s what I’m trying: I have added a new page for sharing downloads for your use. What I haven’t figured out, is if I will be able to add new posts to that page, or is it just one, long-running post that I will add to occasionally.
So for now, I’ll drop in a post here on the front page to let you know when I add something new to the download page 🙂
I use a lot of snippets of text all over my art. I use it in my art journals, on mixed media canvases, on little wood blocks as gifts, on home-made wrapping paper. I used to fight with searching for the perfect text stamps, and then with rub-ons, and still later with individually stamping with alphabet stamps. All of that left me frustrated when what I wanted was a handful of meaningful and inspirational sayings to use. When I want to grab a little snippet, I don’t want to have to spend tons of time figuring it out. So I worked up some pages of text snippets in all different fonts to use. I print them out onto different colored papers, some with prints (they look great on polka dots!), some on heavier cardstock, some on vellum. I keep them at the ready for when I need something to glue onto whatever I’m arting. I just cut out the applicable snippets, and Voila! Instant lovies!
This page is set up as a .pdf with a landscape page orientation. As it is set up, it will fit on the whole of an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet (if I want to use a 12″ x 12″ sheet, I simply cut it down to fit through my printer).
Tip: If you use a laser printer and like to print on vellum, choose the high quality print option as it will heat the toner up to a higher degree and will keep the words from rubbing off of the vellum quite so much.
Feel free to download, my art journal love gift for you!!
Prompt: Make a journal page using some snippets of text in the background or for decorating something in the foreground. It’s fun! Or make up your own text snippet sheet with all of those little sayings you love to use in your art 🙂
