C is for Circus

For the next month, a local art studio, Main and Vine, is displaying altered books. My book is among the pieces on display. We each had a book from a very old encyclopedia to work with. I chose "C" so I could create a circus theme.

I started by making a shadowbook. I used the circus pages from the encyclopedia to cover the background and also on the back of the book.  I used images from an old circus art book, along with vintage circus photos to create the scene inside.

I bought the colorful striped fabric at an estate sale several years ago, but I never had a use for it until now!

The tight rope walkers are my favorite part.

I added ruffled crepe paper and glittered paper flags to complete my "big top" tent.
