Germany

The first thing that came to mind when i thought of Germany was the Berlin Wall (why Black Forest Gateaux didn't i'll never know!)

The Berlin wall, what do i know about this well being honest not a lot, i know it divided East and West Germany and it was demolished and the Hoff was there, he gets about a bit doesn't he?!

When i thought of the wall before googling i thought of Graffiti and this is what my google image search was.

There are some amazing images and without doing any further German Googling i decided to recreate a relatively easy  graffiti image into my card.

Then i used some other elements i saw to make the book page.

Initially i did a light grey water colour paint on the book page and postcard.

then i bought some cheap brush tip felt pens from ASDA (supermarket) i have bought quite a few promarkers but i was worried about ruining them using them over paint as i've done before.

i am really impressed with the colours and it doesn't matter if they get ruined.

Glag someone did the Wall- My girl friend had an exchange student from West Germany live with them for a year. She always talked about "The wall" I thought of it too.
