Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Gypsy Wagon . . .

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.
