Do-it-yourself! (with someone)

Hey there!

I just wanted to start off by mentioning I have completed 3/65 things on my Spring Bucketlist! Today I hugged every member of my family, which was one point, and I also went into town and bought a berry smoothie. :)

For this challenge we had to write something about bargaining or doing it yourself... and to be honest for the first time I was stumped. I haven't been doing anything of this sort for a while... so I decided to do a do-it-with-someone :D

A few weeks back at school we had different workshops for an activity week. Basically, we got to spray a lot of graffiti! It was pretty easy to pick up and after a few tries, it worked pretty well. I made one for the blog with my flag on it. It also has a musical note because I love music! There is an eye because I love reading, writing and just watching things! Weird I know, but honest :3 Here are the results!

 

I advise you try out graffiti, it's super fun and not too hard to get the hang of!

  2. How fun is that?? My school would NEVER have encouraged us to do something like this, I guess because they knew there were too many delinquents who would have taken it as an invitation to spray up the walls of the school! Love your flag!

  6. My art teachers are the same they just let you get on with it and express yourselves however you want, which is so great. Cool work, I have sprayed on top of stencils but never free hand I don't know how mine would turn out if I dared to give it a go

  11. What an awesome idea, it's a great way to get your creativity cut loose and at the same time it must feel very fulfilling to express yourself. Please stop by my post: http://marshmellowbyeva.blogspot.com.es/2014/04/notd-and-giveaway-winners.html

  12. Awesome post! I loved doing the graffitying and your pictures are pretty cool. I still have the smiley-faced one hanging in my room. I always loved your catastrophe graffiti. It's great for a beginner and it looks amazing. The graffiti was a great choice for do-it-yourself, but I didn't see the someone else in there and that was kind of the main thing. Perhaps you could have mentioned why you were doing the second one, or more importantly, with whom?...
