Sharing a Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Halloween project . . .

At the end of this month, I'll be teaching this project at a private class. Can't wait and thanks Joanne for the invitation!

House in a box 1

I'm crazy about the witch weather vane Gina designed specifically for this workshop.

There's a house book inside:

If you're going to my  October 2017 Girlfriends Getaway Crop

you will see this and many more samples using  Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

And, of course, shop 'til you drop all weekend at the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts booth.


Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Gypsy Wagon . . .

How cute is this!

GSLC Wagon copy

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.

GSLC Wagon 4

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.

A Great Time with beautiful Graphic 45 . . .

Yesterday at Checkered Cottage I enjoyed a full days class with wonderful ladies.

We made the Bird on a Box

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts

and beautiful

Graphic 45 papers.

Fussy cutting those gorgeous papers.

We used Graphic 45's Botanical Tea.
