The Knickertwist big top is another one that seriously disturbs my sense of scale. I saw it as a blog post earlier in the week and stared at it for quite a while before I noticed the picot ribbon along the edge and that shifted it back into scale for me.

Wulf

I had the same confusion! I thought, look at Knickertwist cheating and making a life-size circus for this swap.

Such incredible work and a fun optical illusion. Had me fooled!

Prepare to be amazed with what Wulf came up with for me. I adore them!
Poor Millie & Christine don't look like they're feeling very well today.

Brilliant. All of it. And well-made and beautifully creepy. That goes for everything I've seen and haven't commented on as well; I haven't been able to give adequate individual praise to you all but I'm going to be savoring this gallery for a long time to come. (Not as long as Millie and Christine have been stuck in that tin, though... Wink)

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Almost done with library school! That sums things up for now.

Savoring the gallery.  Well said!  These tins need to go on a traveling roadshow together.  I'd pay to see them in person.   Smiley

Oh. My. Gawp. That is just stellar. The ooginess factor is off the charts Wulf. And now I'm a bit scared of the inside of your head my friend.
