Technically this is posting on Friday night. Let’s ignore this small technicality and pretend it is actually Tuesday and I posted this Tuesday Transfers blog on time because I’m awesome like that and in no way a horrible procrastinator. My bad.
I’d also like to pre-apologize for any typos this post may contain, as I’m in the middle of a heated battle between Leonardo, a pizza wielding Michelangelo, some TMNT villain with a purple cape, a cardboard box and a five-year-old.
With this new round of art photos, I decided to try something a little different than the plain backdrops I’ve been using up until now. How? By adding props.
First up is my go-to writing quote by Ernest Hemingway:
Write drunk; edit sober.
My sister and I have a vintage Underwood typewriter from the early 1900s that belonged to our great-grandfather, which served as a great background for this art piece. I’m on a coral/orange kick lately, so this block features orange paint with black transferred graphics. It’s available in my Etsy Shop here.
Keeping with the orange theme, I’ve tried out a new quote:
The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.
I created a vintage inspired orange background using a combination of handwriting and map brushes in Photoshop. I paired this wood piece with one of my globe bookends my sister gave me for a birthday present. That’s also my sister’s passport, because I’ve never left the country therefore I don’t own one. So, yes, this quote is not exactly indicative of my life.
UPDATE: this orange travel quote block is available in my Etsy Shop here.
Here is a larger version of the same quote and background, minus the orange. This close-up offers up a better view of the vintage map background. As of this moment, these pieces aren’t available in my Etsy Shop, but I’ll be sure to update the post once I have them up in the shop.
UPDATE: this ivory travel quote block is available in my Etsy Shop here.
Last one up today is back to the orange theme with a chevron pattern, featuring the Frank Zappa quote:
So many books, so little time.
I’ve already established I own a lot of books, so I had plenty to choose from to form a stack of books with covers in shades of only yellow or orange. I recommend all of them.
UPDATE: this orange chevron quote block is available in my Etsy Shop here.
That’s all the wood art transfers I have for tonight. As I mentioned, I’ll be sure to update this post with the Etsy listings as soon as I get them all uploaded. Happy National Margarita Day. Now please excuse me. Michelangelo needs my assistance.
