Funfair

For this week's tag I used a photo created by a very talented photographer. I asked permission first, but as he's my husband Adrian I didn't think it would be a problem!
The image is of the carousel on Brighton seafront, and Adrian has done some whizzy photoshop stuff to enhance the colours and has added a border. His inspiration was those great 1930s travel posters, with their blocky colours.
I added some gel pen, which did nothing! So then I made some 3d elements. There is a portion of fish and chips, in local newspaper, a stick of Brighton rock and some candy floss. The ribbon came off a M & S room fragrancer, it just seemed to fit!

  11. I love the mini embellishments Jo - a girl after my own heart!! They look good enough to eat - How many calories do you think!! I think your ribbon looks a bit like a seagull is flying by waiting for a chip I think ;-D
