Circus

CIRCUS! 
 Under the Big Top!

The past couple of weeks have been challenging for me... both in regards to how busy I am and the subject matter. I've never been big on games, rides, circuses or things of that nature. So, ideas have been a bit sparse...

On to the "Big Top"...
Not knowing what to do, I thought to myself, "What's the first thing I think of when I hear Circus?". For me, the answer was the Big Top or the tent. So for my tag, I made a circus tent. If I would have known how challenging it would be for me to get all of the angles right and the corners and joints to meet, I think I would have skipped the 3-D tag and gone for something a bit more simple. 

  When I was on Spring Break with our youngest daughter, she asked me to draw her a circus. While it was difficult to do (not having any real frame of reference), I doodle a little circus scene. So, I'm going to post that too... 

Have a wonderfully creative week!
Best, Mary Ann
