Here are the pages i did in Dorothy's circus themed calendar. Once i get this in the mail tomorrow - I'll be all caught up! Still not quite organized after the big move in September. But i spent many hours in my craft room this weekend and last creating these pages. Here is the link to the pages i did last Spring.
The page on the left was in the book - circus acrobats with really strong hair, i guess. So i added Carlotta on the right - since she apparently had really strong teeth. And they both had lovely pink accents - so i tied them together with some lace, ribbon and buttons. Some dictionary text adds a nice vintage touch. Tea and Teeth.
The page on the right reminded me once again of that Anthropologie catalog from last year with the circus images. Hard to believe i didn't have to dig too deep into my boxes of papers to find the page on the left. I know, right? A perfect match! Well - i did give them some gingham and calico skirts to tie them all together. And a really crappy attempt at making red pompoms out of yarn.
And finally here is the sign in page Dorothy created for us. I found (again completely by accident) an image from a Degas painting of two circus girls. I could have created a whole spread with them! But too late - they'll have to content themselves at the back of the book with the other circus characters!
