Pink Saturday

The-Tightrope-Walker, originally uploaded by bluebirdsandteapots.

The-Tightrope-WalkerWhen I was in Kindergarten we put on a Circus show for our parents. I chose to be the tightrope walker. I can still remember the thrill of performing. I had a fascination for the idea of being able to walk and balance on that tiny rope with only a parasol to keep their balance. Years later I watched my daughters and their friends perform le cirque's Allegria in the backyard. We all love the magic of the circus

The-Tightrope-WalkerToday Is Pink Saturday and Bev from How Sweet The Sound is hosting the event. If you stop by HERE you will find lots of pink posts to celebrate Pink Saturday.

The-Tightrope-WalkerLisa Kettell from Faerie Enchantment has recently published a book called The Altered Art Circus. Inside she shares techniques for Journals, Paper Dolls, Art Cards and Assemblages. If you go to any book store or Lisa's blog you can purchase the book.

The-Tightrope-WalkerI was browsing the Barnes and Noble near me the other day, and squealed with delight when I saw the book.

The-Tightrope-WalkerI couldn't wait to come home and be inspired.

The-Tightrope-WalkerLori from Faerie Window is also featured in the book along with some other lovely artisans. I love Lori's work and her creations are gorgeous.

The-Tightrope-WalkerSo many pink treasures and designs to be found. Lisa is also hosting a swap and if you click HERE you can join in the circus fun.


The-Tightrope-WalkerAfter browsing the pages of The Altered Circus I was inspired to create The Tightrope Walker.


and then some cards...


The-Tightrope-WalkerI just added some Summer Breeze blank notecards to my shop.


The-Tightrope-WalkerI also created some journal pages which are hand-painted on lovely textured watercolor paper.
