Scary Clowns!

That’s this week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge… and more from me in red and black. So maybe I can sneak it into Theme Thursday too? 😉

Family Pictures

My husband has a Circus background, as a clown, so it’s no lie that this could be one of our “family pictures”, although all the images are from various black and white collage sheets available from Ten Two Studios. Lisa V. has a vast collection of dark and macabre stuff, ideal for this time of the year!!

I am in transition mode again… I have been cleaning, knitting, gardening – of the brutal variety, like moving dead stuff and making way for other stuff!  I call it “un-nesting” – that’s what I do when I feel that the time has come to move on. I’ve got my ‘restless’ socks on again… 😉

I haven’t exactly been prolifically arty lately either. DD has gone back to school, facing another tough 8 months till she can leave and go to college. DH is slowing down for the winter, but getting busier behind the scenes, raising funds (and awareness) … and me? I made a conscious decision NOT to do the Craft Fair in November. Instead, I am going to take my time building my website and putting all my saleables on there. The big handmade marketplaces are not for me, so I shall be doing my own thing.

There will be more art journalling, more fiberarts, more handmades/wearables and less stress! There will be a lot of smaller items  for sale and I have found a local guy who will help me with top quality printing (again, cutting out the middleman), and I am also going to have some of my favourite artwork printed on T-shirts so I shall be wearing original stuff! How cool is that? *grins*

I am so looking forward to the coming months! What are you up to?

  12. What a fun piece 🙂 I too have never heard of Pennywise! But it still would not put me off clowns…when you have seen the person behind the mask so to speak it’s different…as a child we lived for a time at the winter headquarters of a circus! No circus genes in me though as my parents ran a cafe for the owners
