|Circus Banners: ICAD3|
For Daisy Yellow's Index Card a Day prompt "Circus" I took a 3"x5" index card and:
*applied gesso to cover the printed pink and blue lines on the reverse side of the index card (side note: I put down a piece of wax paper on my table to keep gesso off it);
*painted in a swirly manner over the gesso with light blue, medium blue and white for sky;
*used an ultra-fine permanent marker in dark green and a French Curve, a plastic tracing piece, to create strings on different levels;
*sorted through my art journal fodder and scrapbooking packets of colored, decorative paper for banners in assorted colors and mostly solid pattern;
*used colored pencils to shadow the banners and the banner strings;
*utilized a rubber stamp with stars and dots and stamp pads in purple then in blue to give the starry effect over all
*used PicMonkey to add text and the drop shadow frame;
*scanned the index card and uploaded it at Flickr . Check it out!
