I chose some shabby looking papers as I wanted my Ferris Wheel to look old and a little run down, so with some distress paint, ink and a distressing tool I think I managed to achieve that, what do you think?
I made a few booboo's along the way especially when hand cutting the papers used to decorated the base and the carriages, as you can see in the photo below I cut slits in the paper where they showed on the outside, whoops luckily I was going for the distressed look. I also didn't check that the 'woodgrain' on the paper was going in the right direction for the tops of the carriages, which may have been an issue if I was decorating the Ferris Wheel in a clean and straight way.
I recommend you all visit the Make it Crafty shop and check out the video Zoe has made of the Ferris Wheel going around, it will take you back to your childhood.
The kit comes with all the pieces and comprehensive instructions.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my Ferris Wheel, I hope you like it.
