Romantic Graffiti

A random piece of art journalling that came to me at yesterday's Cubby Hole Playday.

I'm not sure where I originally heard the term 'Romantic Graffiti', but I think it was referring to people who carve their initials into things.

The background has been in my art journal for months. The dark blue streaks were created by dropping a paint covered marble on to the page and rolling it around. Thanks to Sarah Anderson for that one.

The 4 images are from a Judikins cube "Soul Windows". Not sure where the scrap of text came from.

    I think that you may just be right. Eyes will be trendy this year.

  10. lol, this page really caught my eye, especially the graffiti style, grungy lines. I checked how you'd done them and oops, it was me who showed you lol :) Really, really gorgeous piece Nigel, and it just shows it's worth leaving some of those backgrounds hanging around for a while for the right moment ;)
