send in the clowns...

Today is  going to be a creating day for me!!  I haven't gotten out the paper and glue in quite a while, not that I haven't been creating, mind you just not collage.  I have been making flowers like crazy and am thankful that people seem to like them!  You know me though, I like to dabble in many types of art forms and collage is one of my favorites.  I'm even breaking out the soldering iron again so maybe I will have something to share!  For now I'm sharing a piece I did a while back...

I got the image from Karen over at The Graphics Fairy  and I put her in an old rusty clock, I also haven't made over a clock in a while... maybe I should remedy that too!

I love these little guys on the top of the clock, ususally clowns are kinda creepy ( I have unfortunately passed that thought on to my kids and none of them like clowns much so we have never had a clown at a birthday party... well except me :)
I think these two are an exception though!  I put the ticket under glass and then stamped on the fun scrapbook paper.

This is a bit out of the box for me too, using such colorful  paper but the clowns inspired me to step out of the box!

I'm linking up to Karen's party!   I gotta run, time to wake up Max for school, have a great day!

Happy Monday!

  1. How cute! I've been wanting to do some circus stuff to but not sure where to begin! Thanks for the inspiration!


  2. I LOVE the bright colors! & you probably know I am a sucker for anythig polka dots! Love the clowns on top! Before I had kids I used to tell Kel...I should have gone to clown school...I'd be awesome :) I was only 1/2 kidding :) Now I just want to go to balloon twisty school :) Nice work T!!!!

  3. How fun. I think its the image that makes it. Fun and not a standard one. I love it.

  4. Love the idea of repurposing old clocks this way!

  10. Hi Theresa,
    What a great piece! It is one of those pieces that just makes you smile when you look at it.
    I know what you mean about color. I love color but my projects always seem to lean toward the brown wood tones and whites. You've inspired me to try and do something wonderfully colorful this week (except for is White Wednesday :)
    Have a great day. Oh....and you can come thrifting with me anytime. It would be such fun!!

  11. What a very, very cool project! Love that vintage lady image, and even those clowns aren't the usually creepy, scary sort. :) I think this is so unique and awesome!
    Visiting from the Graphics Fairy. TFS!
