And this time, of all things--the circus. I have to admit that I'm not that big of a circus fan. For one thing, I'm afraid of clowns--isn't everyone?? But Graphic 45 got me again with their Le Cirque papers--
I'm such a big fan of Graphic 45. Everything they come out with I love. And in the meantime, this summer, I kept finding circusy-type items at garage sales that I kept picking up--just because---not really having a plan for them.
So the first thing I did was take a regular wood shadowbox, and flip it over, because I knew that it wasn't going to be deep enough for what I wanted to put inside of it.
The back of it is actually the glass part. I just covered it with the Graphic 45 paper. And then I added the knobs on top. And you see that teeny-tiny canvas (flipped over). My plans for that was to take a clown that I found this summer and make a new one!
The canvas is her "body".
And then my little assemblage just seemed to come together on its own--
It was easy with the help of these papers.
And then I took one of my cigar boxes--
I have to say--this time of year (for Christmas gifts), I can't make enough of these boxes. I'm glad that people like them as much as I like to make them.
And one more thing that I wanted to mention. I want to thank Ali for taking the time to put this e-book together. I'm very happy to be a part of this--
It's free and downloadable when you sign up for her newsletter HERE. Thanks so much Ali!
AND.....one more thing--I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween . This is a BIG day for us around here.
Last year Michael Meyers came to our party!--hoping he can come again!
