THESE ARE MY CIRCUS PAGES
I started this page with some really different scrapbook paper. I am so picky about my background paper. I really don't know why but I love paper. Even though most times not much of the paper even shows, the right paper inspires me. I cut out the frames using my cutting machine. Often that takes a lot of time the frames need to fit the pictures and the pictures need to fit the frames. There is a lot of re-sizing both the frames and the pictures to finally bring them together. I already told you the problems that I had with the sequin and bead lights. Then I made the center frame larger and photographed the original newspaper ad for the circus. I had saved the paper for years. Then I assembled them. This time I glued them onto the pages but now I had to weight the pages down to get out the warping caused by the glue. While they were straightening out I made the little pendant banners. Then I altered the dog on the ball by adding a pompom on the hat, and the ticket stubs. I made the balloons for the clown using a balloon punch and Glossy Accents and added a pompom to the hat. Please excuse the shadows from the pompoms. I photograph my pages in front of a window. Shadows sometimes happen.
I hope that you enjoyed this page spread and enjoyed sharing my trials and tribulations with me.
