Banksy Mini Album


Last summer i took a little trip to Bristol with some friends to see the Banksy Exhibition. We had to queue for a really long time, but i was delighted to discover that we were allowed to take pictures inside! This is a rareity for museums/art gallery's.

Anyway, i decided to gather said photos in a little album. It's not my usual style. i experimented with spray paint and i didn't include much journalling (it's realllly hard for me not to journal!) & i cut some of the photos up (which was a little bit scary). i really just wanted to record the photos. And i think it all fits together quite well, plus it was fun to play! For some reason Blogger is being totally lame and won't publish the rest of my photos in landscape, but you can see the whole album here.

i just got some Glimmer Mist's which i am really excited to use. i have been holding off buying these for a while as they are a bit pricey (approx £5.75 a bottle!) and i knew once i started using them i'd want every single colour available. But Papermaze, one of my favourite UK online shops has got 20% off everything this month so i thought i'd give them a go. i did a little test and they exceed my expectations, the colours are so pretty. If anyone has any tips on how to use them, i'd love to know. And which colours you use the most often, as i really am going to have to limit the number i allow myself to buy!

i've got the day off work tomorrow to go on another art trip, so excited!
