Art or Grafitti?







I was lucky enough to be in the USA earlier in the year ( Checked out Michaels and Joanns....Limited luggage allowance unfortunately!) We stopped over in Rapid City.. (The City of The Presidents) where I saw this fantastic ally way covered in grafitti and just had to take pictures!
I love making mini books and this one is for our monthly 'Glue & Stick' meeting. It's a combination of chipboard and acrylic (from Focus) pages cut using a Big Shot. The papers are Basic Grey June Bug. The rub ons and sticker are 7 Gypsies from 3djean

Definitely art! Jealous of your recent visit to Michael's and Joann's. I haven't managed a visit there for quite a few years now. Hope to go back soon though.

Great book. I love graffiti art when it is done properly. Our local church has done a wall in the hall the children use for the youth club. It looks wonderful.
