Club Scrap Graffitti Blog Hop.

Welcome to my Blog.

I am locked away in my hotel room in New Orleans, Iced In.  Luckily I snapped some photos of my project before I left so I can blog while I am away.  I was supposed to fly in today.

My kids have discovered iphoneography.  And I have discovered they  have an eye.  They love to hang out a ranch behind or subdivision and one day they came home with  scores of photos they took.  I printed them out and some of them were really stunning (they are 9 and 11).  I wanted to create a book they could put these in and give to the ranch owners who have all but adopted them.  I made the book, and my daughter is designing and putting together the pages.  The book is nothing more than a paper bag album I created, I used the cardboard found in calendars when you buy them to create a cover and spine.  For the cover, I used my twinkly water colors to color in the black and white graffiti print.   I used the little chalkboard embellishment for the cover, and stenciled the Art Is Fact saying from the Artifacts Kit (February 2009).  I let Phoenix work on the inside pages.  She's still working but she got a good start.








Now hop on over to Debby's blog  and check out her creation.  And if you stumbled upon my blog you can start from the beginning at Club Scraps Blog.
