Last week I got a belated birthday present bag from a dear friend. She had wrapped all the gifts in this most wonderful diamond patterned paper which I had to save and use in this spread. As frequently happens I was working on something else at my desk when I remembered I had red, blue, and white popcorn paper. I made diamonds out of that paper and covered some of the diamonds of the birthday wrap. This background had a circus feel to it and so I found the tight rope walker and the rest just came easily because life is a like walking a tight rope.
