Graffiti Layout (Sketchy Thursday)

Woo...hoo...  loving this website Sketchy Thursdays ... not only do they have great sketches & artists...they also have awesome prizes.  Can you say Copics?

Here is their sketch this week, which is basically a card sketch....

But since I don't really do cards very much, I really wanted to do something simple with my new graffiti pictures I took of Joseph last Friday.  So, I just took some paint and ran some brush strokes on the page, outlined them with black & white pens (see I NEED those Copics!!).  Added the little green brads to "bring out" the alien in the photo.  Painted the thickers red (they were white) and added a little white "smooch" and some black "stickles" to bring out the letters a little.   Love the simplicity of this since it really keeps the focus on the photo.
