This spread is number, I can't remember which, in the barn series. It has taken me quite awhile to finish this piece. I tend to "paint" myself into a corner and then have to problem solve to get myself out of it. In this case, I loved a paper towel that had coats of paint from various projects on it. So I adhered the towel to the journal. It sat and sat until this week when I thought about a circus theme. I added circles of tissue paper and then I decollaged circus posters to the spread. I found a photo of a barn that had circus posters plastered to it and then I found the clowns and the uni-cyclist. Once they were glued down on the pages I quickly called it done. Then last night I realized I had done the whole piece upside down in the signature. So I guess I can now called Topsy-Turvy Circus.
