Circus


The last weeks here have not been easy for me, as there were themes - such as casino and  funfair which are not really mine! But as it is a challenge I have tried to tackle all the themes! I think it will be getting better from next week. This week it is circus, another place  I don't like and never visit, so I decided to make another dimensional tag, this time of the big top. The background inside the tent has been decorated with some Graphics 45 paper , and some silver spangled ribbon for curtains, and a clown is peeking out to entice people in....I have mounted it onto a ribbon spool again - how good that I did not throw those empty spools away! - and the rim has been painted with green and 'grassed' with some green glitter-flock powder.





Here's wishing you all a great day, take care, and thanks for visiting!
