Make it Monday #319 Graffiti Word Art

I am afraid to look back and see how many Make it Mondays I have missed.  For some unknown reason, I did not take any Papertrey Ink supplies down to Phoenix for the winter, so I could not participate in the challenges for the last three and one half months.

I didn’t want to miss out on this week’s challenge, but at first glance, I came up empty.  When that happens, I really have to go through my stuff again with a “think outside the box” mentality (a cliche I know but it does work).  Second time around, I saw the Wave stamp and it reminded me very much of the grafitti swirls that I see, so I picked that out.  I put some of the painted words together to form a motto that might find itself on a graffiti wall.  I used some Ombre inks and some embossing powder on the words to achieve the look shown in the video.  To show the nature of graffiti being where it is not supposed to be, I made the swirl not quite  fit into the rectangle mat.  The patterned paper from Kaisercraft’s Basecoat provided the cement like mat.  Another patterned paper from Basic Grey provided the colour scheme and again emphasized the graffiti look in the background.
