Whew… How is that incredible inspiration so far?
I am hoping you landed here from
and are hopping your way through the
Mo & Zo’s Carnival Hop!
Yup Zo is ME!! hehee
How many times have you had to lift your jaw off the ground?
From what I have sneaked a peek at, there is more of that to come!
You have reached the halfway point but I promise it’s going to continue to be awesome!
There are just so many ways to have fun with these images right?
If you have just landed here having no idea what is going on then
you’ll definitely want to HOP right on over to see
JAK where this incredible Carnival hop begins!
Along the way we have been asking everyone to collect letters on balloons
which when written in order will spell out a well known saying!
I don’t have a letter!!
BUT I can share with you what fabulous prizes we have up for grabs!!
Stampavie Polymer Stamps and Make it Crafty Kissing Booth
from Quixotic Paperie!
So that’s THREE chances of winning one of these fabulous prizes!!
So what have I created to inspire you today?
Well…. I have been wanting to make at Ferris Wheel that works for AGES!! But it was one of those things that gets put off all the time.
And I thought to myself… Well isn’t this the perfect opportunity?
If I don’t make it now, then it will never happen.
So I decided to create a whole Carnival Scene and propped up all the little characters on acetate so they could stand up and be moved around to create the scene!
Can’t you just imagine how much fun children would have playing with something like this?
Wait, forget the children – I HAD FUN PLAYING WITH IT!!!
So there’s a HEAP of photos!
Some photo’s can be enlarged when clicked.
This is my whole scene.
I have used a number of my Carnival Scene images and a number of the characters from Mo’s Digital Pencil.
I merged these two images together before printing.
The Kissing booth from MiC is designed to be easily placed over a character and they will show right through the ‘window’ area.
And as you can see ‘Little Smooch‘ is all puckered up ready for a big sloppy KISS! heeehe
Next up we have ‘Angelina’ and ‘The Fat Lady‘
hmmm… I wonder if the fat lady has anything to do with today??
In the distance there you can see a bit of the MiC ‘Circus Tent‘.
Now some shots of the ferris wheel.
UPDATE: For details on how I made the Ferris Wheel
I now have another post outlining it here.
Fortunately it looks a little better with all the characters around it. I had so many problems with this one.
The weather has been terrible and the paint took forever to dry AND I should have bought matt paint NOT gloss as I got finger prints all over it trying to put it all together.
BUT, it was so much fun to design it all up and make it
and then the satisfaction of turning the little handle and it WORKS!!
Before I send you on to your next stop,
Mo has illustrated the most ADORABLE little girl ‘Cotton Candy‘
All proceeds from sales throughout the hop will go to the UK & US ‘Make a Wish’ Foundations.
So your next fabulous blog to hop to is
But… before you go… you know how hops work right?
Leave me a little LURVE and it’s possible that I might have another hidden prize to give away!
Thank you SOOOOO much for joining us and I hope for those of you who celebrate Easter have a wonderful day
and to everyone, may you have a wonderful weekend with family and loved ones.
