If I were in the circus...

This was a prompt from my awesome sketchbook yahoo group.

If you were in the circus, what would you be? I thought of it for a while and I wanted to be the gypsy fortune teller. With tents, pillows, long scarfs, crystal balls etc..

I went through my images and took out the ones that spoke this to me. After I had them all out, I found I had too many for one page, so I did a 2 page spread.

I love how everything came together and invokes the mood and what I was trying to make.

Oh, how did Johnny get in here? I suppose I would let him share my circus tent. Especially if he's bringin that piano. I could use some music in there. :)


  1. Fantastic pages. You did get a wonderful mood of expectancy, promises. I love the idea of having live piano in the background. ;-))

  2. Love the spread you did! does your fortune teller do astrology?! lol
    Great job Cheryl! Johnny is sooo cute!

  3. Love your circus spread!! Oh where did you get the photo of Johnny??? I want one!!! (How old I am 12????LOL -really 'she's old enough to know better') alth-you're never too old to thing Johnny is too cute!!

  4. Very nice!! It's been awhile since I've been on here. I love all the other recent posts and art as well! :-) Now I feel inspired to go make art. Thanks!!

  5. Love your fortune teller Cheryl. So bright and mysterious. I had to seriously laugh when I saw Johnny. How DID he sneak in there? I want him to catch me on the trapeze too!

  6. Great spread. You definitely made a mystical, crystal ball kind of spread.

  7. Hi, I love your combination of images, especially the crystal ball-looking disco ball!
