I went to the home of a cousin who had discovered lots of ancestors photos and was more than willing to share with me ... my second love is genealogy and maybe that is one of the reasons I love the vintage look so much .... any way hope you can use this in your art it will make them live again ..... be sure to click on the so you get the largest view to copy .....

Circus 4x4

just got my prototype finished and now to make 33 more ..... I love the Circus theme so much I finally joined in a Fat Book swap, which I had been avoiding till now ... lol .... the photo doesn't show the fact that the clown collars are painted with Twinkling H2O's which gives lots more sparkle to the look .... the back ground is card stock that was inked in several colors then gessoed over and put into the printer using rubber stamp font to print some of the history of the circus ... then I stamped the gold velum border and embossed it ... the clown tag is done on Sheer Heaven paper so I could use the water based Twinkling H2O paint because it would buckle vellum ....
