I have been Smash booking again!!!

I  have only just recently taken the plunge into the world of smash booking and was super pumped to find  a challenge blog for it!!  Life in Details this month has asked to use a sketch for inspiration this month and i was up for the challenge. I managed to finish this in an afternoon sitting which i was super stoked about too!!! My Smash book pages i finished were a dedication to my love of graffiti. I know most people think it is vandalism and tagging and that is ugly don't get me wrong but most graffiti really are amazing pieces of art work. Earlier this year upon my travels through Melbourne i was snapping photos of graffiti left, right and centre lol. But i chose to scrap one piece that was on a wall where we stayed. So without further adieu here is the sketch which inspired my pages....


 
 
To create my pages i used washi tape which i purchased from Typo. I love Typo!!! It is a little shop which sells vintage styled stuff as well as scrapping supplies. I have also added texture paste, paint, doodling, mists and some chippy alphabets which have been in my stash forever. I really love using mix matched alphas,it really creates a unique look!
 
 


 
Ok so thanks for dropping by. Take care and i will see you soon!
