ATC Swap and Guerrilla Friday

Gotta love the post office....they bring me such nice things (except my bills).  Today I got this cute ATC card from Marilyn of Busy Martha from our card swap, the theme was White/Snow:

Thank you Marilyn, I love my ATC card.

My first Guerrilla Friday, yay! Guerrilla Friday was started by Marfi Bradford of Incipent Wings .  It's a day you make something nice for a complete stranger.  

I had so much fun with my Guerrilla Friday this morning.  It was quite an adventure. Look at the view this morning, the little bright spot on the left is the moon...pretty...This is a view of downtown Los Angeles from the third street bridge.  My little escapade took place to the right of all the buildings you see below:

Here's what chose for my Guerrilla Friday:

It's a little girly but I figured, who ever finds it probably has a daughter or a niece.  The three divas are rubber stamped images I purchased at Stampotique

I chose to leave this near the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.  Here's a picture of where I left my artwork with a note that read, "hello stranger, take me with you", lol.:  

It was not easy leaving it there since there's people everywhere you look.  I tried acting like a tourist, I figured my tactic would work because I had the camera.  But still, I may have looked a little suspicious to a group of young boys standing a few feet away.  As I walked away and greeted them good morning, I wondered if they would eventually see it.  But then, as I walked up the street, I saw a bus headed for the bench.  I turned to watch.....maybe one of it's passengers getting off the bus would find it???

Here's a look down the street:


and here's a look up the street:
and a look across the street:



The Cathedral was dedicated in 2002.  The Cathedral was designed by the Spanish architect, Rafael Moneo. It can accommodate over three thousand people.  The ceremonial room stands one hundred feet tall!  The complex is 58,000 square feet and it's twelve feet high.  Here's a picture from Wikipedia:


The organ is amazing, here's a picture from Wikipedia:
That wraps up my first Guerrilla Friday.  I hope it inspires you to try it yourself.

  9. How fun... I loved seeing your pictures, I know every single angle you took being a native and in high school I took the bus right by there every day. I drive over the third street bridge a couple of times a month. What a great way to share your creativity.
