Fun at the Fair:Inspiration

I have been searching for inspiration for an upcoming exhibition and decided on the theme "Fun at the Fair". As a child I was often taken to Blackpool and is now my favourite place to visit, hence why I am always inspired by the circus,fun fairs and vintage seaside imagery. I have created fashion collections inspired by these themes, now I want to create artwork inspired by them. I aim to use collage, stitch, paint and digital editing to create my work. Here are some images that are influencing what I am creating.
