Fright Night at the Circus-by Lesley

Hey people. Lesley here with a piece that my dog hasn't destroyed! Yay!!!

Continuing on with Halloween type stuff, I decided to alter one of the little circus tents.

I started by gluing the square bit of the tent together and painting it red. 
I then used a cobweb stencil and black paint.

I painted the front of the circus block, using a touch of silver as well.

I snipped the tiny flag off the top, and attached one of the new flying skulls with bat wings. Which I had painted and used glaze on top of the wings.

I used a blob of clay, which I painted black and glued it to the base of the tent. The skulls were painted and roses attached, and then glued to sticks before placing into the clay.

To finish, I added a word element from the Horror and Halloween set.

Thanks for reading
