Moving Shabby Chic Ferris Wheel


Hi Everyone, 

I am excited to reveal what I have been working on. So here is the great unveiling of my decorated Ferris Wheel.  I love altering and playing with paint and papers,  and I have so enjoyed decorating the Make It Crafty Ferris Wheel


  
I have decorated the main parts of the Ferris Wheel using a combination of papers and acrylic paint.  To do this I placed the chipboard piece that I wanted to cover in paper, onto my paper and drew around it with a pencil and cut out and stuck down using some strong glue.  All edges have been distressed using acrylic paint.

I have alternated each cart with lilac paper and then the next using the floral paper to give the wheel some contrast.
 
 I do love a bit of lace and flowers so you will notice that each cart has a lace canopy and again alternating flowers of purple and white on the canopy tops.  
 I added an arrangement of flowers and leaves to the base/entrance of the wheel and also added a fence.  Of course I want my Tilda's to be safe, lol.
   
 When I saw what our genius Boss had come up with the idea of little sitting Tilda's on a shabby chic Ferris Wheel was at the forefront on my mind, don't they look cute.    



Products used:- 
Papers by Magnolia and Maya
Mini Magnolia Tilda's
Acrylic White Paint
Lace
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Leaves are dies by Magnolia and Decorative Elegance By Marianne Designs


I hope I have inspired you to give this a go, it's beautiful as a gift or to keep in your Craft Room and if you turn the handle it goes around too.........

I would like to enter my Ferris Wheel into the following challenges:-

Midweek Magnolias - Anything but a card
Simon Says Stamp - Anything but a card
Bearly Mine - Flowers
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Distress It
Just Magnolia - Summer Colours


Be back soon

Hugs Tracy x
