Hi everyone. I am here today with a page for Elle's Language challenge at Art Journal Journey and also for this months's More Mixed Media challenge that is anything goes with optional pink.
My page today is all about the language of science. Science has lots of words to describe phenomena and characteristics. Some of these words have made it into mainstream language, and some of them haven't. I guess you could say like many other areas of expertise and professions, science has its own jargon.
jargon: special words or expressions that are used by a particular profession or group and are difficult for others to understand
I think many words in my science specialty (biology) are easy to work out if you know the meaning of the roots in the word. I always taught kids that way, hoping they could use that tool throughout their lives to figure things out. Even if they don't remember that it was their biology teacher who taught them that- smile.
My page today started with a Gelli-printed background that I then stamped with some sciencey images. I had the black tag which was stenciled with white paint, and I added that. I also stamped the tag with the same image as the background.
The hearts were cut out of a magazine page, and the cool science lady was stamped on acetate. I then painted the opposite of the acetate, and once that dried, I sanded it a bit. The purple "flowery" things are actually atomic electron configuration models. They were a cool stamp image in the same set as the science lady. I stamped, colored and fussy cut those out of plain white paper.
I used a scrap part of a tag stamped with letters to form the word science, some label tape as well as some foam letters to finish off my page.
That's my page. Have a wonderful day, and and as always, I appreciate you stopping by.
