It is July on Pixels and Paper ...

I think everyone will love the challenge we have for you on Pixels and Paper this month - who doesn't like a ferris wheel?

We are also putting out a DT call for several new members to join our design team.  Please find all the relevant details on the blog.  Applications close 20th July.

This month we are working with this terrific image - does this take you back to the fun fairs of your youth?  Do you remember riding on the carousel or taking your children on the merry-go- round?  Does this remind you of those fun times on the dodgem cars or of eating fairy floss (cotton candy) until you we so sick you couldn't eat another bite!  Perhaps you think of going to the circus or visiting the rides at shopping centres or at vacation spots.  Maybe you just like the colours - I see lots of red, yellow, blue and white, there's stars and flags and puffy white clouds.

and here is my page ....

This image made me immediately think of all the fun fairs and circus troops we have visit the area where I live.  They set up on an oval near the waterfront and as I go past this area at least four times each week day they become a familiar and comforting sight for the time they are visiting us.  The Great Moscow Circus was very special as rather than the traditional "big top" they had a series of turreted tents, I guess to replicate the domes of St Peter's Basilica in The Red Square in Moscow.  None the less it was an impressive sight.

Hope you can play along this month - we'd love to see what you make of our photograph.
