Hey! Hey! It's Friday! It's Kim here, and I am happy to be blogging again here at October Afternoon.
I have a page to share you today using some of the sexy new 9-5 products. I love how they are 'vintage office' inspired which is actually what sparked off the page theme I settled on. In my box of goodies, I found a bag of Here & Now Chapter sheets.
One of them has a great close up of a typewriter on the back which made me excited, then I had a look inside the Miscellany bag & found a bunch of cute cards with typewriter references on them.
Notice how ones eye is drawn to the pattern that appears from the 'keys' of the photographs, then again from the yellow vintage card & also from the thin strips of the black chevron.
These repeated elements create a visual triangle within the page, but the page is busy is it not? Yet it is somehow not chaotic?
I created calm within the storm by using both horizontal & vertical linear elements.
Yes I love my typewriters, they hold a very dear place in my heart :) It went without saying that I would use one of them to add journaling to the page. My 'abc 2000s' has a smaller font size which allowed me to comfortably attach the journal blocks & strips to a plain piece of paper before typing my thoughts.
As a little bonus I created a title banner for you with the word 'Collection' on it.
I made it made for most die-cutting machines, you will find the links here. Feel free to use it for your own personal use. If you do get a chance to use it, remember to upload your page to the October Afternoon Flickr gallery for everyone to enjoy.
Thanks for joining me today. Have a GREAT Friday & weekend!
