Happy Scrappy Friends | Street Art


Street art is the topic for this month's Happy Scrappy Friends blog hop. Honestly, one that I struggled with… but let's start with some inspiration that Marjan put together for our viewing pleasure!

Street Art inspiration | It's next to impossible to give credit for this but Marjan has sources linked on her Pinterest.

Gorgeous isn't it? The diagonal row from the bottom left to the upper right is my favorite. Yet, as I told you already up above, I did struggle with this topic. I'm not a drawer or painter. If I were to draw something from the top of my head with my own hands… oh my goodness! A five year old could easily beat me. Now, are you giggling, shaking your head with pity? Or can you relate?

What is street art - on a basis that I can work with? For one, it's colorful, full of depth and, not least, texture from concrete buildings or whatever the surface underneath. Quite often you see words in elaborate lettering. Paint drips and sprinkles. Well, and that's what I ran with! A bold hand-lettered sentiment, a textured surface and several layers of tiny sprinkles and stamped dots.
