Digital Collage - Encourage...



I have reading a lot of buzz on my yahoo groups and the internet about the book "Walls Notebook" by Sherwood Forlee.  Brilliant. Wished I had thought of it first. Goodness knows I have more than enough photos to do several of these books. In fact,  I think I will put my own together with my photos.
The premise of The Wall, if you don't know, is that there are a bunch of photographs of various walls in various cities. You are to add your own artwork and grafitti to the pages. Therefore making it your own. So here is my photograph of a wall - textile mill in North Carolina - with my digitally added grafitti. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing this marvelous idea, and thanks for sharing your own graffiti wall. I've said before you need to do a library table book with your wonderful photos and accompanying notes...walls or not. I'm thinking this might be a great challenge for one of the art challenge blogs I'm involved with. My visits to your blog are ever and always inspiring, Elizabeth. Thank you!

I am always taking pics of old walls, (especially brick with ads). I love your rendition! Better walls the further east you go.

I love what you do, and I wish that I knew how. Since I can't pain, digital would fit like a glove. I used to do little things when I had Picture It, but it doesn't work on Windows 7..sadly!!! I have missed being apart of blogland, it is good to be back. hugs, mary
