Our Guest Designer & Color Challenge News!


Today is Francine's turn to share a project that she created using Graphic 45's Le Cirque and Curtain Call!  I love her project, it is truly a feast for your eyes!  The pictures don't do it justice so you should go into Page's to see it in person!

Francine created a diorama, which she loved in childhood.  I was amazed at all the hand cutting and different elements that she used.  You'll see everything from a tight rope walker to an elephant and a lion and a wooden plaque.  Take a look!

Here's the full view of the diorama.  Now let's take a few looks close up!
Here's our tight-rope walker!

And our broom loving little clown witch!  And of course, what circus is complete without a little horse?

Here's a little clown with real pom-poms and our little elephant on his stand.

Here's the top view of the diorama, there's chipboard letters that spell our "Big Top" along with a painted "Laugh"  wooden plaque and a leopard.  The entire box is covered with different pieces of paper from the 2 paper lines.  Francine Modge Podged everything!
Here's our laser cut wooden lion face, stained with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

And our last look at the little elephant.  I love that Francine used a tag with the elephant riding a bike glued to the stand. 

Didn't you just love it?  I promise, if you go into the store to see the display you'll want to look at it for hours - it really has some great embellishments if you enjoy altered art!

You can check out Francine's Blog if you'd like to see more of her work!

Thanks for hanging out with us this month and seeing what everyone came up with!

Remember, the Color Challenge is still going on and we decided to throw in a prize for the winner of the challenge!  So email me those pictures with your projects!  Can't wait to see them!

Have a great weekend!
