No Spell Check

No Spellcheck {or backspace}

This is the typewriter I learned to type on! The kind where you need reinforced fingers to “hammer” those keys down! I still own this typewriter, it was my dad’s, and I still use it when I want authentic typing.

Kaisercraft “Art of Life” Collection

I dug out some Kaisercraft papers I’ve had hoarded for I don’t know how long and decided they would work perfectly for my vintage style page about my vintage typewriter!

Transparent gesso; nuvo “Aquamarine” mousse; Shimmerz “Coal” Paint; Tim Holtz “Typo” Stencil
Distress Oxides “Vintage Photo” and “Broken China”
Distress Crayons “Vintage Photo” and “Black Soot”

I knew I was going to be folding down some of the top of this paper, I didn’t want it to be white, I didn’t want to add gesso, and I didn’t want any inks to possibly bleed through. My solution? Distress Crayons!

Before adding “Broken China” Distress Oxide
Inked up with Distress Oxides & sprayed with water to “activate”
The button is from {A Flair For Buttons}
Some Thickers Corrugated Letters, and some puffy alphas from Hip Kit Club!
