Hi, it’s Neet (short for Anita) from Hickydorums and I am thrilled to have been invited to be hosting a challenge here on Art Journal Journey. This is my first time hosting so I will begin by telling you something about myself.
I live in the north of England with my partner and I used to be a teacher before I took early retirement because of an injury sustained whilst parachuting.
I began paper-crafting many years ago in the early days of my retirement, first Parchment Craft and then Rubber Stamping which has now led to Mixed Media and Art Journaling. I also became a demonstrator at craft shows all over the UK, and visited CHA several times in America, in that capacity.
Typing has always been a passion of mine and I love the various fonts you can now play around with on a computer which is why I chose “Type” as my topic for August but I want you to think broadly around the word - very broadly!
The Readers Digest Pocket dictionary says: n. person, thing or event serving as an illustration, symbol or specimen; a letter or other character used in printing; collection or fount of this; execute on, or use typewriter.
So think - typewriter, printing machines, keys (as on a typewriter), fonts, letters and numbers used in different ways - correspondence, calligraphy, illuminated letters, signs etc
Remember, also, it can be used as both a verb (“he typed the words …”) and a noun (“he wrote her the type of letter she loved”) so that hopefully opens up a whole host of images you can use.
I so look forward to seeing what you come up with.
