Paris Carousel

Hi :) I've been playing with a brilliant free kit from Daisytrail. It's their latest and is called Eccentric Carousel. It is only available for Serif Craft Artist, but you can download the compact version of it for free. I started writing this post yesterday after I posted my page to Daisytrail and this morning when I woke up I found that it had been selected as Featured Project :) It is on the front page of Dasiytrail for today (24th December). Such a lovely surprise :)

The photo is one I took of a carousel in Paris, back in 2007. I love it, I think it's because it reminds me of enjoying a ride on the carousel as a child, and when I saw this kit I knew that I had to make a page with it. The Eiffel Tower is within view of the carousel so I had to add this element to the page too!

I love the alpha that comes with this kit, and I used it big and bold! I then positioned the carousel horse so that it is walking along the top of it. I blended paint splats into the background as well as a sparkly swirl and patterned border to add some extra texture to it and layered up elements on top. The bunting I just couldn't resist using and I think it finishes off the page perfectly.

And now after all the talk of Paris I can nothing else but daydream of Paris in Spring!


  1. I always love the carousels when I was small too. Great kit to compliment your beautiful and cheerful page. Roll on Springtime x :)
