FM218 Celebrate County Fairs!

Today for the Friday Mashup, Lisa has a tricky one for us, or for me at least, punch art (or punches) inspired by the state (or county) fair.

I started with some banner punches, which always says party and fun, and I couldn't resist using a ferris wheel, Missy and my favorite!  I used some patterned paper, lighted up with some gesso, to create a backdrop.  From there, a little popcorn punch art.

The sad part is Missy and I missed this year's county fair because she was too booked with all her summer camps.  :(

So I'm trying the new archival Basic Black ink for the first time, available in the upcoming Holiday catalog on September 1.  It is so nice and dark and crisp.  I love it!!
