Circus



Here is my circus tent, with Charlie the Clown greeting you and welcoming you inside.  I cut a circus tent shape out of cardstock, painted it in stripes of red, yellow and lime green and distress it with charcoal pencil to make it look old.  Strings of pearls for lights, yellow ribbon folded into a banner stamped with the word "Circus".  Yellow ribbon folded and edged with red ink form the flag at the top.

Off to look round the wonderful creations that everyone posts here and thanks for your kind and encouraging comments.
