Gypsy Gypsy Caravan


Hi Everyone, Today I am super excited to finally be able to show you my Gypsy Caravan I made for my DT post with Craft Consortium using their gorgeous Gypsy Gypsy Paper Pad....very apt don't you think !

My Gypsy Wagon will be going off on its travels to Frankfurt to a large Trade Show at the end of January, isn't that exciting !  So I needed to make it sturdy enough to withstand several journeys, so I attached my paper to chipboard to reinforce the walls.


My Wagon Wheels were cut out from a Cereal box several times gluing and weighting them down to dry. I then coloured them with Copic Pens and added some Gilding Wax and a Hitch Fastener to the centres.


My Windows and Flourishes were also cut and layered from a Cereal Box and painted with a complimentary red paint. Using Gesso I stamped on my peeled paint effect with Andy Skinners Industrial stamp set.


Once dry I rubbed over with a Potting Soil Archival Ink to shabby them up.


For my fence and door I used the same effect as on my windows.


My seat, floor and door are all made from Coffee Stirrer sticks. My milk churns are small glass bottles covered in Alcohol Inks with a stud fastener and a metal ring added to them. My tablecloth highlights another paper from this paper pad. My crystal ball is a glass marble sitting on a jewellery finding. My cat is a little button.


My corrugated roof showcases another paper from the pad, I love the look it gives. Craft Consortium also do a matching Corrugated Decoupage paper which I lined over the base of my wagon.


My roof flowers were made using Cheery Lynn flower dies. Some are cut from the Gypsy Gypsy Pad and others shaded with Distress Inks, I tried to copy some of the flower designs on my wagon walls. The butterflies were fussy cut from the paper pad too.

Now I'll just let you enjoy some more close up photographs.


The flooring inside the wagon is a paper sheet from the Gypsy Gypsy pad.







This is the second time I have made a wagon ( See the older one HERE ) and the design is purely out of my head without following any templates, but this time I changed the dimensions slightly and used some different techniques.

Please check out Craft Consortium on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram to keep up with all their new products and fabulous give-aways.

Thanks for stopping by today and would love if you left me a comment,

Crafty Hugs,

Julie x
