WOYWW and ABC Wednesday - T

This week at ABC Wednesday, the letter T is the focus.

T is for triangles and tissue paper.

and also

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.

Triangles, Tissue and Typography - Three T's - shame my name begins with an "H" and not a "T" as I send to you in the swap. Cool pages! Have you tried the 'bleeding tissue' technique?
Please can you send me your address - my email is on the side bar of my blog (under the guise of a little girl).
Happy WOYWW Anniversary - Neet xx

I like the quote being layered on top actually. And I really admire your working with tissue and glue in the same time and space dimension...it sticks to my fingers. Clothes. Hair. Table. Chair. And practically makes me cry with anger!

These are beautiful triangles. You have SO much patience. I can never get tissue to behave properly, because it tears. yours is much nicer.

Happy, happy 6th WOYWW anniversary from #1.
