Send in the Clowns! Artistic Outpost New Release

"Send in the Clowns" is the newest release from Artistic Outpost featuring vintage images of lovable, funny, clowns. Our clowns are not creepy and they are definitely not scary. This collection comes in both unmounted (8.5" x 5.5") sheets as well as precut, mounted on EZMount foam, and packaged on their own printed and indexed storage sheet.

All images are designed to also coordinate with our Vintage Circus collection. We are just in love with this collection, and we hope you are too."

"As a preview special, when you buy "Send in the Clowns" you will also get a FREE coordinating collage sheet professionally printed on cardstock. This sheet features more circus images including vintage posters and advertisements. This special is good through March 22nd."


Here is my first project using the Send in the Clown stamp plate:



This is a mini poster that I created using the darling chubby clown image. I drew in the center ring free-hand and stamped the unicycle. I used the dot border to create the audience by overstamping the dots in a row.

I masked the space around the clown and used my copic airbrush to create the darkened arena. I then masked just the clown and airbrushed my lightest yellow and my lightest grey to create the illusion of a spotlight. The white dots in the crowd are supposed to look like camera flashes going off.

Be sure to stop by the Artistic Outpost blog and check out the projects created by the other DT members and Guest Designers.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow night for more new projects using Send in the Clowns!
