A Happier Graffiti Page

Dear friends,
I created just another graffiti page last night. This time, a happier, more colorful take on this intriguing art (graffiti). 

Inspiration: Space graffiti wall I saw in town.

The completed journal pages:

I did not use any acrylic paint at all. Yes!. Just some doodling with black Sharpie, colorful ZIG markers and liquid correction pen.


Background colors are from water-soluble crayons (smudged with wet finger), various washi tapes and stamped patterns. Can you see the intricate stamp patterns in gold ink?. Loving that.

This was such a quick page to complete. Needed minimal drying time, which I loved. Another journal spread with too many colors for my own good :). I hope you enjoy it too. 

See you soon; XO

It would be perfect for you since you are the queen of art journal. Here's the link: http://stampingbella.com/blog/

    1. have you tried markers/crayons doodle art with Faiz in mega canvases? ... think they'd make great wall art :). or a series of 4" X 4" little canvases, grouped together seems fun too. You know, mother-son art collaboration. I've read about this in a mixed-media mag :).
