Welcome to the Circus!

The second challenge for MayzyArt is live, and for the next two weeks we want to see your CIRCUS themed projects!!  Mayzy has some adorable circus images available, and I got to work with the Ringmaster - who better to welcome you to the circus!!

After some experimenting I made an explosion box featuring the Ringmaster image colored with Copics, fussy cut and mounted beside the tent flap, beckoning you inside!!  I've made explosion boxes before, but always with a flat top to decorate, so I had to figure out how to make the pointed top.  On the inside of the box, I used circus animal figures and a center platform to mimic the interior of a circus tent. 

The dp is an older paper from Creative Imaginations Samantha Walker line.
Hop on over to the MayzyArt challenge here, get creative and enter to win free digital images from Mayzy's etsy site.
