7Gypsies Tray..........Finally Done!

If you know me, you know I'm slow......I have a VERY hard time making up my mind. The hardest thing for me to do is to FINALLY get the nerve to GLUE!

I overthink, and change things a LOT!

BUT, I took yesterday.....and night..........and early this AM to finish this baby up...once and for all!

And I LOVE IT!  So, mission accomplished.

These 2 faces will be incorporated into one of the new fall classes coming up. We'll make plain photos look like old picture booth photos. Most everything here is from the OUTSTANDING 7Gypsies class I was lucky enough to attend at CHA.

Great products, great project.....fantastic teacher. Not an easy task when you're limited like you are at CHA. My hats off to all involved.

LOVE the Bottles and the Rub-ons here. Papers, hangers, chipboard pieces, corners, and trim studs.

This has several pieces I added, of course, one being the Bauble from Tim Holtz and some stamps from the Papillon set. I used several different colors of Alcohol Ink to color the pearl.

To add to the great Rub ons theme, I used Tim's Tissue Tapes around the tray as well. And Glossy Accents to most of the numbers and letters.

I used lots of Distress Inks, well I had to, it's just what I do.

And more Tim stamps.

I had to do something with the great heart we made in the Melt Art class with Tim and here it is on the end of the Balloon or Kite string. You decide.

And a wonderful flower from KaiserCraft!!!!!

I LOVE this section. Layers of Rubons on a tag and then a piece of Shrink Plastic I made with one of my favorite ATC stamps from Stampers Anonymous and Tim. And some vintage measuring tape with stamps (of course).

Just one more Shrink Plastic piece that was sitting on my desk. The bird stamp needed to know how lucky he was to be free and not in a there ya go!

This last section is a book that opens when you undo the elastic hook across it.  Brilliant design by the teacher here! I may have to take some pix of it later...

I love it, it was fun, and it puts a smile on my face.

Great stuff from the Gypsies.

They were WAYYYYYY ahead of their time. And I've always, always loved everything they come out with. 

Let me know what you did with yours, if you were in the class, or just send pix of what you've been doing with 7Gypsies.

Be well and be good to each other!!!

    I LOVE this piece! Taking your time was so worth it. Just wonderful results. And I am also slow when I create, I hem and haw, move things, change my mind, before I'm done. And in most cases, the piece ends up nothing like what I planned in the first place - LOL!
