I did the same design on each of the photo spots,matching 2 photos together. I did some hand stitching & some distressed layers. I did stencil work under the ATC frame,using the prima gate stencil upside down. I left some of the chipboard raw & the rest I either used picket fence crackle,or texture effects…..


These turn,there is a scrapped photo behind this one,the photo carousel also turns….





The lattice part is solid, so it does not turn….

Now for the challenging part,it does not have to be challenging,but I made it so,by making this winter,Christmas theme on top. The hardest part is to make sure all sides look good,as there is no backside. So it really got filled in,. covering up spots


This is where I used the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection,on the presents & chairs. I put three trees together,so as you turn the carousel, you would have a good view of all sides….


The top of the carousel ends where you see the flourish,in between the mailbox & wintertime….


I made a stage to hold the trees,dress forms,rocking chairs & presents. For the stage I used a old round box,put a doily on top,then wrapped it with burlap trim,made burlap bows,added beads to the bows, then a tiny silver rose on the centers of the bows ….



I am having a GIVEAWAY with the BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE FROST BASICS COLLECTION on my blog! You can find my blog in the Creative Team section!

Thank you so much for taking the time to look & I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas & all the Best in the New Year………RachelleRachelle-sign (2)
