I created this circus girl in a jar for the Gecko Galz Yahoo Group Challenge. The image is from Gecko Galz. They sell a wide variety of collage sheets for crafters to use in their artwork. Check it out.
I added some chalk to the image to make it really colorful. I glued the image to a piece of cardstock and then cut out around it. I then glued the image to a large craft stick to give it even more support. I left about an inch on the bottom to stick into the rice. I added some sequins to the design and the jar contents. I glued some black pom pom trim around the top of the jar.
I had fun photographing the jar outside on my neighbor's fence. It was the perfect backdrop for a jar fairy. I couldn't decide which pic I liked best so I posted them all.
