In the circus

Maybe it is going to be boring... but again: My new favorites! It is really difficult to choose at the moment which ones to wear! 

Some stripes, a little bit of black smear and stripes in red and cream... create a lovely vintage effect. And hey, elefants! Who can resist elefants?! 

I used crafting paper I got from a friend, while searching through her trash and materials and tools (Oh, I love to go through other work stuff!) I found a little paper punch for these elefants. I punched two elefants in the paper, cut out the circles, glued them on cardboard...

...and used a ink pad for stamping to roll the circles in the ink... and paint the elefants... Don't be carfeul at this step! The result will always look great and the smear effect is (at least in my opinion) important to create the whole effect!

You see, I am going to be a little bit more sophisticated with my paper earrings: I am using now metal for the holes! 

And last but not least: A thin layer of 3D laquer (glue). You can still see how the punched elefants pop out!


  1. I love interesting items like this, as you can tell if you look at my shop. I would love for you to strut your stuff at my weekly linky party Friday through monday. I am also hosting a Valentine contest and your Valentine posts could win you some fun prizes. Hope to see you soon.

  2. These are just too stinkin' cute!!! Thanks for sharing them with us :)

  3. Absolutely wonderful! I really like the vintage effect - I sometimes try to do it and rarely get it right. Your antiquing is so pretty!
