Art Journal Page 173

Hi everyone!

I was playing around with background and texture without creating dimension, such as texture paste, using various shades of brown & grey. Once I had the background 'finished' I thought it looked a bit like bricks or a wall, so decided it needed a stencil to create the cobblestone effect, then it needed some graffiti! But, um...I wasn't going to even attempt to have a go at it so googled graffiti and came up with the image I used! Done!
