Altered Jar - Circus Girl

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.

I am entering this altered jar in the following challenges:

Gecko Galz Yahoo Group - crystal clear
Dream Valley - #45 anything goes
Divas by Design - #61 anything goes
Penny's Paper Crafty - #102 anything goes
