G is for Graffiti

I had some great fun yesterday. Now considering the title of this post, you might wonder what I have been up to.

My art journalling attempt

This week I’m posting my first attempts at art journalling. This is something I’ve wanted to try for some time, but I’m finding it hard to actually do. I’ve done art all my life, but beyond the sketching I did as a child, it has always been to draw up to a fianl piece…you know, the type you frame and hang on a wall.
