This collage has been mounted on a piece of gessoed chipboard, and eight of Nancy's Crowabout images were used. Photo imaging software was used to size some of the supplied images. The little clown is from a FLICKR image sharing group; and some of the circus ephemera was scanned from scrapbook stickers then altered with paint and Prismacolor pencils. Twinkling H2O's were used to give the clown and the sky a subtle shimmer (although the scanner doesn't pick up the sheen). The orange and red striped border (at the top) was hand drawn and hand colored.
A very special thanks to Nancy Baumiller who administers the FLICKR Crowabout Group!!! Nancy's colorful "Giveaway" packaged arrived late yesterday chuck full of fun goodies! (I was the lucky winner of her anniversary celebration giveaway a few weeks ago.) Thanks, dear Nancy, for your generosity!!! I LOVE the artwork, and the stamps, and the stencil, and the stickers . . . . . I love it ALL!!!! The piece of "Police Line Do Not Cross" tape is one of my faves! (I'm saving it to use in my son's bedroom when it reaches the critical mass/mess stage!) If you'd like to have fun, check out Nancy's blog, her Etsy and the Crowabout Group! Thanks again, Nancy!
