My All-time Favorite Altered Album - Vintage Circus
















This has to be my ALL-TIME FAVORITE paper bag album that I've made so far.  I did some research on circuses while creating this album and learned so much.  Did you know that in circus lingo instead of saying "break a leg" to a clown, you say "bump a nose!"  Or, when a circus is performing their last show before heading home, they hang their posters upside down...the dining car of the circus train is called the Pie Car...and on and on.  I think the circus life is fascinating.  They seem to have a world of their own that meanders through ours from time to time.  Anyway, this was so much fun to make.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  Oh, one more thing, the gorilla in the cage, that has moving part, and the clown are my original artwork.  Enjoy!

  2. Thanks Andrea! It was a really interesting piece to do. I learned so much about the circus performers lives. There really was so much that I was not able to photograph. Wish I could have shared more.
