To make sure that you are on track in the blog hop you should have come to me after visiting Carol's blog, and before her from Imagine if.
My theme was 'boys', so I was given a car, truck, helicopter & plane to decorate the merry-go-round.
When I got all the chipboard pieces I was actually quite intimidated, but when you sit down and get into it, it really is quite easy and fun to put together. Without the flag on the roof this stands 18cm high with the base measuring 17cm.
I started the base firstly by covering the side with this gorgeous My Minds Eye paper along with the central pillar. For the floor I have used aluminium foil which I embossed with a cuttlebug folder. This was painted black, then I rubbed most of the paint off the give a bit of depth. The poles are bits of dowel that I painted silver. The roof has been covered with the gorgeous Bella Glitz glittered cardstock, which really gives this a 'circus' feel I think. I have painted all the vehicles fairly traditionally, and added photos to them for a little more interest.
This has been a real fun project to tackle and I am really excited with how its turned out, just let your imagination go wild as to all the possibilities to make your own very personalised merry-go-round. Browse through the chipboard available at Imagine if . . to find and create the theme of your choice.
