Hi everyone, I don't seem to have had much time for blogging or indeed much else. We have been out a few times, some for pleasure some for necessity but we have almost caught up with everything.
I have had the magazine image of the QWERTY keyboard in my scrap box for a while and I remembered using a French keyboard in a hotel managers office some time ago - the keyboard wasn't a great deal different but it was noticeable, when I came across this image again I looked up some info on Wikipedia.
The QWERTY keyboard was devised by an American, Christopher Sholes when he found that by using the original keyboard design on typewriters it caused some most used letter combination keys to jam so he separated them on his design and that's the way it's been ever since (with a few minor adjustments)
However, there are many different keyboard layouts all over the World that are more appropriate to the language of the country (Scandinavia, France, Romania, Malta to name a few) Here's the link to the Wikipedia information.
I started my page by stamping a Carabelle Studio random letter stamp on my page on both black and red, I then added some larger letters with an Aall and Create stamp. Next I rubbed on some red paint with a baby wipe.I also added parts of a World map with an old Aladine foam stamp.
The typewriter is a favourite from Crafty Individuals and I layered the images with torn piece of note paper from my desk.
Finally the word QWERTY was stamped and coloured in and each letter outlined to represent keys.
We are still finishing week 20 of our Wanderlust pages and week 21 is started but here are our pages from Week 19(you may have seen them on Instagram already)
