word as pattern

Exploring a technique called stacked word, I've been enjoying going back through a few of the previous blog posts on the The Sketchbook Challenge and stumbled across a posting by artist Judi Hurwitt called Stacked Journaling I was drawn to the patterns and shapes that developed simply by working with one word and re-writing it onto it's self in several directions.
I started with the black pen onto white paper and the word "encourage" and then moved onto several pen colors and the word "spirit". Finally playing with the top mixed media piece using charcoal, acrylic paint and pen on paper with the words "happy, joy and change"


  1. I love the colours in the top one.

  2. I love writing in painting :) looks sooo interesting .... great Mel !
