Make My Monday - Circus

This week's theme at Make My Monday is "Circus". My first thought was that I would have to sit this one out as I had nothing remotely connected with circus. Then I saw a drawing of a clown's face while I was looking for inspiration and it occurred to me that a lot of it was round shapes.

Off I hurried to my craft room while the idea was fresh and a short while later this is what I had come up with - all apart from the green mat made from scraps of card. I used a lot of circle punches and dies.

Face: Spellbinders circle die
Mouth: SU 21/2 " punch - corners of mouth PL corner punch, black marker for line
Nose: 3/4" circle punch
Cheeks: 1/2" circle punch
Eyes: 1/2" circle punch in black, 3/8" circle punch in white - triangle drawn with black marker
Hair: Cloud shape from SU Word Bubbles framelits
Hat: 13/4" circle punch, bottom chopped off,  brim:  tag from PL framelits and ends trimmed with scissors.
Flower and bling from my stash.

As I've used lots of scraps I'm going to take it over to Pixies Snippets Playground where Di always wants to see snippets/scraps used.
