I'm just an art bombing "Toy"!

Hello my creative friends!  Well it's time for my very quick trip to California to see my Docs and my lovely friend Sharon L.  I'm hoping to meet up with another high school friend who found me on facebook,XXXXXX.  Boy did we have some fabulous adventures back in the day!  Can't wait!

I have put together my art bombing kit for my trip.  It's a bit on the upscale side, LOL!  Andy Warhol indeed! Ha, ha, ha!  I've never heard of an avant-garde art bombing have you?

I picked up this cool tote sometime back and finally found a use for it.  I'm really not the tagger backpack type so I got a bit of a chortle out of putting this together.  In the graffiti world I'd be called a "toy" but I don't care - this is not my real scene anyway and at my age being called a "toy" is very flattering!  LOL!  Gawd, am I glad I don't take myself very seriously!

Since I have never done this before it is going to be harder than I am imagining I'm sure.  I worked up a few designs and we'll see how it goes.  Just fyi, I will only tag over pre-existing bombs so I won't be defacing any new property. 

I have been working on a new journal cover the last few days as the old one got severely out of control as seen below...!

 After I glued all the crap on and pounced some craft paint over it, I took it to my chair and doodled all over it.  Then I went back and painted on some more detail.  Yikes!  What a mess!  So now it is the inside of the cover and I have started over on the outside of it.  I will share it with you when I get back.

Music in the studio this week was...Green Day - American Idiot, and Matchbox Twenty.

So keep shaking those spray cans (or whatever blows your skirt up) and I'll see ya next week.

Forever in art,  Jessica

Hey Jessica,

Have a very safe trip to Cali. What area will you be visiting? I'm in the Southern part, and the weather has been fab. Hope it stays that way for you. It's been raining off and on.

Love your bag and goodies. You can do a lot of fun damages with that stuff. hehe I've been adding a few spray paint touches to my pages and am lovin' it (lovin the smell too)
You're taste in music rocks.

Again, may you have a safe trip and can't wait to here about it.

What a gorgeous tote bag! I like your idea of turning your cover inside out.

Have a safe and lovely trip. Spray cans at the ready!

I just read your comment on my were in Redondo Bech and Torrance. Lol I lived in Redondo for 6 yrs, and now live in Torrance. That is too funny. Hope your trip was all you hoped it to be. Glad you made it back safe and sound.
