Circus Trials and Tribulations
Here are thumbnails of my circus shrine photos ... you can click on them to go to larger view.
I made this Saturday in Claudia Roulier's circus shrine class. Well I made most of it on Saturday ... because I can't do simple, I had to finish assembling some things at home.
I am not mechanically inclined ... putting the legs on took me half a day LOL The game box I used for the main shrine was very hard wood ... and it did not like nails nor screws LOL After the leg and copper tag fiasco I couldn' bear the thought of using yet another nail or screw, so I used a staple gun to attach the mica ... and that worked like a dream ... now if I could inly figure out how to staple on legs LOL
The topper was like a shrine in itself ... although much simpler construction wise. I recently saw an article by Lou McCulloch in Kaleidoscope that became my inspiration for my shrine topper.
We had a blast in this class ... and Claudia is a fabulous teacher, so go sign up for a class with Claudia if you ever get the chance!
