...... thats what Candice is asking us to do over at Our Creative Corner this month.
Blessed are the gypsies. The makers of music, artists, writers, dreamers of dreams, wanderers and vagabonds, children and misfits: for they teach us to see the world through beautiful eyes
This month's challenge invites you to let us see your gypsy nature. Gypsies are wanderers, purveyors of exquisite things, mysterious things, free-spirited bohemians curating the beauty of life and sharing the wonders with you as the travel along.
So for the challenge let your creativity run wild and free like a gypsy
I want you to create interesting items you might imagine finding at a traditional Gypsy Fayre.
You may create whatever your gypsy heart desires, but it must....
contain at least 3 colours from the featured colour palette
show us how your project is inspired by this gorgeous ode to the gypsy soul!
For my project I decided to go with as many of the bohemian colours as I could, along with items which reminded me of gypsy caravans I have been fortunate to see over the years.
I started with my background and whilst I had intended to ink these colours I used this glorious piece of cardstock which I then overstamped and added some texture with crackle texture paste.
I then gathered pieces which reminded me of a gypsy caravan:
gorgeous lace which you always see at the windows and along the shelves
a teaspoon (rather than cup) for reading the tea leaves
colourful flowers - I have memories of lots of dried flowers hanging from the ceiling
and some really colourful ribbon - again memories of ribbons for some reason!
The white frame got a bit of a make-over with DecoArt paints - gorgeously bright!
And then everything got layered in a huge quite random "mess" - the free bit of the challenge!
I quite like all that lovely depth. The key got added just "because" !!
Unfortunately the words I had added at the beginning on my tag were really not bright enough so I added an appropriate sentiment (or two)
My colourful Gypsy Tag
