She lived for the moment

Now that all the Easter cards are done, in the mail and hopefully arriving on time.You'll see for this girlie clown piece that I used supplies that I had on my table,  like the Tim Holtz texture fades and the purple tissue from my Easter baskets. This darling vintage image is from Fripperies and Butterflies. They have a April challenge to use one of their Big Top images and of course, I picked the prettiest one. Moxie Fab World also has a Tissue Paper Magic Challenge, so I am submitting this.
The image had some faint coloring of yellow and pink, so I watercolored her to intensify the colors and bring out the details of her frilly costume. The background is several layers of paper and Bingo numbers from Tim Holtz Texture Fades. Around the edge there is  lilac tissue trim that is layered with gold stars, glitter heart corners and numbered squares. The accents were the glitter hat, rhinestone earring and the heart belt. I added the word snippet, just perfect for a performer..."She lived for the moment, of a bubble rising into the light." and fini.
Hope you are living for the moment,
Artfully yours, gerri
