Graffiti style book

The ATC group I meet with once a month is in the final stages of a Round Robin. This books theme is Graffiti. This is my first attempt at anything in a somewhat Graffiti style, but I have to admit I had fun with it. The lettering is just done with markers verses spray paint, but I did a bit of spraying around the sides to give the feeling it was spray painted.
*************************
While at JournalFest I played around a lot with spraying and stencils and really enjoyed it .... might have to explore that further. Still no word on my lost camera, so I am using my daughters for now. Next week I'll be shopping for a new one if it doesn't turn up. This really doesn't please me. Yet ANOTHER high tech gizmo I'll have to spend far too much time trying to figure out how to use.

Ingrid, your first attempt at graffiti is awesome! I'm so sorry to hear that your missing camera hasn't reappeared. BUMMER! It one thing to lose the camera, but yet another to have lost all of the "memories". Hugs, Terri

I am truly saddened by the apparent loss of your camera and the underlying implications of human nature.

On a brighter note, graffiti seems to be the emerging art trend. Some people are even developing their own graffiti signatures. It's wonderful that you are exploring this new avenue of art.
