Le Cirque

Who doesn't love the circus.... Over the years we have been too many a different circus and loved them all - Cirque du Soleil is one of my favourites!! Will never forget the first time we saw Saltimbanco!!!!!

Anyway I digress lol!! When Graphic 45 brought out their new Le Cirque range I couldn't wait to get my hands on it - it is bright and fun and full of character... some have even said it is scary!!!! But no - once you start playing with it is makes creating so much more fun - the papers simply work together so well that despite a few of them being very busy in design they work together!!!!!!!!!

For something a bit fun and to go with a few of my Cirque Dusoleil items I made this mini village tent!! The minature houses, shadowbox and circus tent are all by Twiddleybitz and work so well with the Graphic 45 papers I had.

Add in some smooch'es and the new VIVA precious metal colour paints I have just discovered (available from Rachel Greig at Darkroom Door ) and voila!!!!
