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

And, of course, shop 'til you drop all weekend at the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts booth.
I've been a follower of Tammy Tutterow's work for years. Her style is decidedly her own and it is always beautiful. When I first discovered her work at a CHA years ago, I was thrilled to learn she was just across the river. Tammy designs her own display at CHA and it shows: a mix of new designs with a bit of an antique look.
These decorated spools were dispersed throughout her display. What a darling idea! And if you're a Tammy follower, you'll recognize the felt flowers. Love the centers of those!
I would love to put this happy banner with the decorated spools on top of a birthday cake!
This was my favorite. If you follow various blogs, you know that some of the gals choose a word of the year . . . an inspiration word. Well, Tammy used a large spool and fabric and added several of the her words from over the years. She used her Spellbinders dies and an antique baby quilt and strung the words together to create this rolled keepsake.
Wish I had a photo of her mini-books with antique-look fabric covers. They are beautiful. Maybe she'll show them on her blog!
Here's another design from Spellbinders that I thought was really cute (not a Tammy design):
More from CHA tomorrow!
Designed by Laura Denison, this owl is amazing!
It looks so complicated yet with
Laura makes it very easy to construct.
This poor guy broke his nose flying home but I still love him.
I added modeling past behind some of the pieces
to give the feathers an added lift.
And popped up the entire owl head on the canvas background.
Once home, I added more feathers
and branches and a knot from a tree hole and a pine cone.
Also added skeleton leaves from
as well as some tiny beads and bling.
One of the gals at Laura's Salem event
thought he would be pretty cool as a winter white owl!

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
memories came flooding back and I was in love with this project.
Of course, the perfect pairing for this project is
I mixed several collections, both old and new
and set out to decorate the wagon
To paint the wagon, I used
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.

I've created a tutorial so you can easily see the steps I took to create this project.
