Send In The Clowns, The Paper Doll Parade Marches On

13 of these guys, for a circus themed collaborative in my Altered Art Fat Books group! We each contribute 13 INTERACTIVE 6x6 pages.

This is my background
with a little bling on the right hand border

This is the back of my pageskind of a fun, quirky image

I made the the clown dolls by scanning a page from an old (1978) Dover publication, "Antique French Jumping Jacks: 11 Easy to Assemble Toys That Move". (The book is in mint condition, picked it up an estate sale for $1.) After cutting all the pieces, I assembled with brads and used mini red pom poms to accentuate.
Each is mounted to the page (slightly off center to accomodate for the binding coils on the left) with pop-up foam adhesive squares.
The legs and arms are articulated so the clown can REALLY clown around. I can't wait to see what the other 12 come up with!

What creative eye candy! I love everything about it. The colors, the elements, the layout. I am not even a big clown fan but this is a special piece of work.
