Circus

Time has flown away from me this week and even though I didn't really have much work to do on my tag, I haven't had time to do it until today. 

I have looked at some of the tags already here and my oh my, they are fabulous, colourful and SO much fun - as circuses are of course. 


Thank you all very much for your kind comments again last week, you all give me so much inspiration week on week
Here is my tag for this week 

'The Hedgerow Circus'
'In his spotted coat, the Ring Master conducted the circus. 
The caterpillars were getting ready for the tug of war as the hedgehogs looked on.
The bees buzzed back and forth. 
The butterflies flitted and fluttered. 
Higher and higher they flew. “How beautiful,” chorused everyone.'

This was inspired by a children's book of the same name written by Ruth Thomson. I found the background and most of the pictures on-line. I stuck them all down with sticky pads to give it some dimension and used some coloured thread for the caterpillars 'rope'. I also added some flowers and dragonflies.
