A Fear of Heights

Who would have thought it - a Trapeze Artist family has a scaredy-cat amongst them, with no head for heights.  The SHAME of it!!!  They make him go up every night, but after tonight the Ringmaster has had enough - too many in the audience complaining about the green @#!!*%**# stuff spewing out over them!  Bloobel's "Sick Boy" initially brought up ideas of crawling through the desert, dying of thirst, but the circus theme has been in my head for a few months now and keeps taking over (but NO monkeys here.
I matted an 8x8 Graphics 45 paper over a random 12x12 page.  Two kebab skewers and some gold & silver rope make the Tightrope this poor lad is supposed to walk 6 nights a week plus Saturday & Sunday matinees.  I've become a fan of Faber Castell's big brush Pitt pens, the white does a great job at ghosting the boy - caught in the bright lights of the circus like a possum on the road.  The audience is made up of members of Lost Coast Design's Doll Border.  I stamped Sun & Stars border (also Lost Coast) randomly in the tent's roof cavity to give it some "texture".  And outlined the tent roof with dresden scrap bling and mosaic mirror tiles
Just to gross you out, the season's pile of "puke" - going moldy too!  Some stuffing "painted" greenish, some 3D Lumiere adding to the reality of stuff dripping down.

Why not join the fun this month? Are you scared? Buwahahaha!


  1. This is hilarious! Love the gory goo and all of the details. What a fabulous way to use this image!

  2. OMG! What a RIOT! Perfect use of the images and the moldy vomit is an especially nice touch. LOL xxD
