Circus Clown Assemblage

Hi everyone, Monique here, sharing a fun circus project made of an altoid tin.

supplies used:
Altoid Tin
Yellow and white cardstock
Acrylic paint in Yellow and Red
Red and black stamp ink
Letter beads spelling the word circus
2 wooden bobbin
Rhinestones in Red and Yellow
colored pencils
acryilc block
scissors

paintbrushes
glue

 Step 1: remove the lid from the altoid tin
step 2: make a background using the stencil and red paint
step 3: gesso the tin (only outside)
Step 4 paint the bobbins red
Step 5: measure the stencilled cardstock  to fit the inside of the tin (I traced the tin on the back of the cardstock and cut it out along the inside of my marks.
Step 6: decorate the inside of the tin, and make a "stage"by folding a piece of the stencilled cardstock
Step 7: use the  scallope punch and yellow cardstock to make a border to decorate the top of the tin
Step 8: make an impression of part of the clown stamp using red ink on yellow cardstock
Step 9: cut the stamped image triangular shape and ink the edges using a red ink or paint.  Add foam board if needed to reinforce the "clown sign".
Paint the letters yellow and red like in the picture above, and decorate the bobbins with yellow stripes on the edges.
Step 9: decorate the tin, the scalloped edge and the "wheels"and "sign"using the rhinestones
Step 10: make an impression of the clown stamp using black ink
Step 11: assemble all parts like in the picture above
Step 12: color the clown and cut it out
Step 13:  adhere the Pierrot vintage Stamp  to the back of the tin using foam tape to create dimension .
