The Art of Graffiti

 I am really enjoying this Amazing Race of Art Journaling Challenge, but I'm running at the back of the pack!  I am finding so much inspiration--not just from the wonderful prompts--but also from the artwork posted by the others who are running this race!  I think it was a bit too fast-paced for the way I work.  After I complete the 5 destinations in this challenge, the prompts will come at a more manageable pace.

Germany was actually the fourth destination in this race, but since I already had an idea for my pages, I decided to skip Italy and tackle Germany first. 

I created an accordion fold out page (a total of 7 panels, decorated front and back) to represent the Berlin Wall.  I took images of the wall, pieced them together for a coherent look, then made several packing tape transfers.  The artwork is so colorful and expressive.  To top off my wall, I used 28 gauge wire to simulate barbed wire along the top edge.
