CASology #85


Welcome to Week 85 of CASology!  Here's the cue word for this week:


When I think of carnivals and fairs I think of stomach churning rides, unwinnable games and yummy food.  My favourite is funnel cake but I didn't have any funnel cake images kicking around.  :)  However, I came across some flock in the Craft Cave recently and it immediately made me think of cotton candy.  I've never used flock before (NBUS!) and I'm definitely going to need a bit more practice with it because it was nice and fluffy at first but fell a little flat once the glue dried. (Any tips for the best glue or other sticky stuff to use?) Anyway it did add some texture and a bit of that wispy softness of cotton candy to the image so it was a good first attempt.  And now it's your turn.  Check out the fabulous creations from the Design Team and then show us what comes to mind when you think of a carnival!  




And this week's guest designer:

Cute cotton candy, Jen. I'm with you on the funnel cakes, if they're the same as elephant ears.

Really, no funnel cake images lying around in your stash? I like cotton candy better anyway, and the flocking is such a cool idea for the texture! Your card made me smile, as usual...you have a gift for that!
