With the Circus theme this month I thought I would
make a Tent out of a folded book.
This is the first stage and I will post a photo of
the finished Big Top Circus Tent when it's ready.
See a video of how it was made HERE

This is my Oriental Junk Journal made out of all the Chinese and Japanese papers, photos, magazine clippings and ephemera I have collected. I am glad I got it done for one of the studio themes.
2015 is the year of The Sheep/Ram.
This junk journal now also includes these two oriental cards that I have made.
The journal will be in the studio for inspiration.
Hope you enjoy viewing the video.

Started really early this morning working on this
Circus Inspiration Album.
It's for 12"x12" pages.
So larger than I normally use for this ideas process.
I had collected a lot of the pictures and embellishments and had
made a start on some research.
There are so many images available due to the
I made a note of where pictures and inspiration came from.
The wrapping paper came from the super market.
Which looks like circus tent fabric!
The Circus Inspiration is one of the topics I am using
this month in The Old Art Room Studio.
I normally tend to start with research and then make a sketchbook
which contains pictures, photos, ephemera, designs
and art work.
So, this is the first step in my process this time as I
had large pictures I wanted to use.
It's more a scrapbook technique.
There are lots of left overs from this first Album to form the
sketchbook which I will post shortly and I
want to make a Junk Journal too.
