Ferris Wheel ~ Glitz Design (Color Me Happy Collection)

   I just LOVE color, and what better collection to showcase a rainbow of colors than with Glitz Design's (Color Me Happy Collection)!

   As soon as I saw the mood board this month at Scrap Around the World I was immediately drawn to the colors, and was inspired to drip a rainbow of paint on my page.

   I also drew inspiration from their sketch, because what's a ferris wheel photo without some kind of circle design. Keeping that in mind I hand-stitched a circle with a rainbow of beads to mimic the lights from the ferris wheel.

This is also my entry for a few challenges at
 November 5 Ingredients Challenge
2.drops and/or drips - acrylic paints
3.matted paper-I matted my photo with black cardstock that I punched holes in.
4.banner with words
5.frame - After playing with my paints, I cut the chevron frame and placed it on my page,  before adding the gesso with my mini gears template on the left side of the photo.

November Four Categories Challenge for category 1 to use washi tape, with the twist to use it in 2 different ways. I have some under the photo and over it. I also used Fancy Pants Chalk tape to create the banner, and drew the letters on with a white pen. The leftover triangles that I cut from the banner were used to create the arrow pointing to yes, because I love ferris wheels and being up in the air!

Stamping Challenge that I host with the twist of embossed stamping, which I did to all of my flowers and the photo corner. I stamped "enjoy the ride" with black ink on the yellow file sticker that I cut on the bottom right. Here's a closer look at the flowers.

Thanks for looking!
