At the Circus

I have always adored the ephemera that attaches to the Circus.  I have never, mind you, enjoyed visits to the ring – in my childhood I found them boring or hated the way they treated the animals, and the slapstick never made me laugh – but give me an old ticket stub or the image of a clown and I’m yours for life!

This collage comprises a mixture of elements, some from my own collection (textured background and boy pierrot), a couple from The Graphics Fairy (lady on horse and cyclist) and a couple from Wikimedia (circus poster and aerialists).

    1. Lovely to see you here, Karen, and I’m delighted you like this so much! We must have been separated at birth – I’ve just seen your comment on your latest image about the word ‘Xmas’! I’ve never been fond of the word ‘Santa’, either!!


  1. Such a gorgeous collage… I just adore that man on the bike! I bet those are hard to ride, and there he is with his feet up, loving life. You’ve captured the circus very well!


  2. This is a fun collage! I love circus images too! I do have to admit that I hate clowns in general though to me they are very scary! yikes!!! You always do such wonderful work, can’t wait to see the next post : )


  3. That is a wonderful collage, very beautifully done. There’s just something about circus ephemera that takes over the imagination, Thanks for visiting!
