How cute is this!
I have adored Gypsy wagons ever since I saw my first one.
I was 18 years old and traveling with my cousin and Grandparents through Northern Spain.
We passed a Gypsy wagon on a country road and I was in love.
The Gypsy life . . . carefree, traveling and seeing Europe on your own terms in a tiny house.
This 18 year old saw it as a somewhat romantic way to travel.
Now, the 66 year old in me wants a 5 star hotel room with room service!
(ok, it doesn't have to be 5 stars)
In any case, once I saw this Gypsy Wagon from
Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts
memories came flooding back and I was in love with this project.
Of course, the perfect pairing for this project is
Canvas Corps' 7 Gypsies collections!
I mixed several collections, both old and new
and set out to decorate the wagon
as well as all the miniature furniture, banners, stars & moon and shutters from
Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.
To paint the wagon, I used
Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Kits.
I chose the Weathered Bronze kit for painting most of the wagon
including the wood and the tint on the shutters.
I added strokes of Glimmer Glaze to the roof
making the wood look a bit old with a dash of patina.
Inside the wagon is a bed and table & chairs,
all from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.
I've created a tutorial so you can easily see the steps I took to create this project.
