The Circus Is In Town



This is my first piece for Happy Daze this month, and have used the Artistic Outpost Stamps, Send In The Clowns, Vintage Circus and Whimsical Melange.


I did originally start by just making a set of ATC's then I decided to make them up into a circus tent shape, which fits in with this months challenge theme as it's circular.


To colour the ATC's I used Distress Inks and on the roof I used Gesso as a base and then coloured it with Red Pepper Colour Wash Ink.

The details of this months challenge can be seen on the original post on the Design team Blog here.

Lol Mandy, this is what I was doing for the challenge post, but it had roof issues....and then I sat in it :(((. But I made another roof and learnt from my mistakes of the first one.

Oh this is wonderful - the hot colours are fabulous and it's one of those peices of art that makes you feel so happy just looking at it - and brings a big cheesy clown's smile to your face.
