Welcome to The Circus Art Journal Zine
The lovely cover. I splattered watercolors all over it, and then the title was added by Misty, I think?
My first page above is a sort of collage of techniques. Magazine mage packgrounds, gelli print circles, stenciled medium, and glitter.
One of my other zine squad homies added the cut out of the girl, I think she really finished out the spread.
My second page, on the right.
I bought a pack of animal stamps at a garage sale recently and they just fir so well with the circus theme. I basically wanted to stamp elephants everywhere, but settled for just stamping over my painted background.
My most favorite page! You know I can't resist painting a galaxy. I had the idea to paint a night sky, with the silhouette of a circus on the horizon. I might have gone a bit wild with the watercolors.
