Be sure to visit Alpha Stamps during their July Circus Celebration - click here to let the fun start!
The Mini Theatre Circus kit arrived - along with a few extras - and I let my imagination go wild. I knew I wanted to create something that would not only showcase the terrific products in the kit and in the shop, but would, hopefully, inspire others to let whim take over their better sense!
Very little of the products used were not included in the kit - the supplies are 90% of Alpha Stamp origin.
Basically, the piece consists of three components: the base, the carousel-shaped column stand, and the mini theatres topper. In the above photo, the resin circus animals and the hand-made polymer flowers are the only pieces not included in the kit. The carousel shaped column started out as a $1 unfinished birdfeeder from Joann's, which was completely dismantled and rearranged and retains little of it's original appearance, other than the shape.
This one features circus performers and dancers and showgirls, and a big-top interior background from Alpha Stamps collage sheets. Also, the circus images (kind of hard to see in the photo) displayed in the bottle caps are from Alpha Stamps - a Graphic 45 sheet of cardstock.
The second mini theatre utilizes more Alpha Stamps collage sheets - the circus performers background, the clown, the theatre facade and the chariot-driving dog. The 3-D golden stars on the facade (also used on the base) were from the kit, as well.
And finally, the top piece of colorful feathers, arranged in a piece of foam which has also been covered with hand-made polymer flowers. The figures on the posts - and the delightful miniature gold-glittered stars - are from Alpha Stamps collage sheets and part of the circus kit.
This was so much fun to create - I hope you enjoyed seeing it. You're going to see it again, as I plan on selling tickets to a raffle for it to benefit our local dog rescue. I do hope you'll participate in the good intentions - and maybe win a charming new piece for your collection!
Remember, start to run away to join the circus here!
Now, go make something beautiful!
