WoJ Clown

Last week for the Make it Colourful challenge I colored the Circus Tent... but it turns out we forgot our tickets! So this week we're heading back to the entrance to visit the Ticket Booth! This week our challenge is to color skies... and yes, there is a sky located under all the embellishments. :D Honest!

This cute clown is from Whiff of Joy and looked friendly enough that I had to have it for this Carnival collection. ;D The sky was done in a winds pattern which I had tried out before (on the Wacky House) and loved how it turned out. Here's a picture of the sky before the Carnival "opened."

Did you know? Opal is an amorphous form of silica related to quartz, a mineraloid form, not a mineral. 3% to 21% of the total weight is water, but the content is usually between 6% to 10%. It is deposited at a relatively low temperature and may occur in the fissures of almost any kind of rock, being most commonly found with limonite, sandstone, rhyolite, marl and basalt. 97% of opal is produced in Australia and is its national gemstone.
