Graffiti Art Painting


I have not really made anything in weeks. So I was getting a hard core art jones going. Inspired by the class I’m taking from Traci Bautista I sat down in a few spare minutes yesterday to make this.

Graffiti Art Painting

It is created on 8 1/2" by 11" ivory cardstock with gel medium, acrylic paint, and Sharpie paint pens. The yellow decoration down the left side is paper tape.

I will be sending this along with some paper goodies for a swap. I suppose it could be used like a collage sheet and torn up and used in other artwork. Or it could be framed as is.

It was really fun to make and I thing I’ll do some more work in this style. I seem to be getting caught up in a lot of planning and that's starting to stifle me a bit. This page was just a big, fun doodle. I need to let go more and trust the process!

Lovely. I wish I could get a hold of sharpie paint pens! They look fab. Don't think they sell them in UK.

I've seen Traci on Craft Lab a bunch of times. I can see her influence - nice piece, Vickie!

Beautiful! Which class is it that you are taking by her? I'm contemplating taking one but they all look so great! I would love to make collage papers like this, any suggestion which class would be best for that?

Traci is such an inspiration, but your paper is awesome Vickie! I would use it as a cover for a journal! :-)

Traci Bautista has all sorts of classes going on right now or soon. They all look so wonderful I can't tell which one might be best. But I can say the class I took was chock full of delicious ideas and inspiration.
