This week at ABC Wednesday, the letter T is the focus.
T is for triangles and tissue paper.
typography (From Wikipedia: "Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language readable and appealing."
Be sure to check here for how others around the world approached T.
It is that time of the week when we share our workspaces at Julia's blog "Stamping Ground".
As I worked on the spread above, my table was covered in tissue.
Layer after layer was added over two days, with more and more materials building up around the journal.
The final layer was the quote - tied into typography.
The quote is by Paul Standard and seemed appropriate:
"Geometry can produce legible letters but art alone makes them beautiful. Art begins where geometry ends, and imparts to letters a character transcending mere measurement."
I learned something about layering with this spread - the cut up words needed to be placed first, then the tissue! Then the quote would have had more emphasis.
