The Family Circus

Harlow!

Now that the holidays are here, things are much noisier and crazier at the Ngoo house - we're trying to juggle schedules and activities...Anyways, this project and tutorial I did for Graphic45 seems highly appropriate right now!

Here's what I made:  A set of 3 altered canvases hinged together
I used the G45 Le Cirque collection and assigned circus jobs to each of the Ngoos:

Baboo the Ringmaster
Beth the Lion Tamer (guess who's the lion?)
Benny the Acrobat
And here's a tutorial showing step by step how I altered my canvases. Just in case you wanna have a go at it too.... (please do! It's lots of messy fun!)
 Hmm....wonder what my job is in the Ngoo circus...heh. Maybe I'm the Elephant! :)

I love it Sharon and it gave me a chuckle. I need to make one for my crazy family, lol. I really appreciate the step by step tutorial because I love mixed media. What a great technique with the black paint and water, the effect it leaves is awesome. I'm definitely going to give this a try.
