The latest gypsy cart photos with the new brown trim, along with the freshly painted trailer base. The wheels will soon become a gold color!
New inspiration can come from an old design. We own a small trailer that is in dire need of fresh paint, so I began to think of the uses of this trailer. Uses ranged from hauling kayaks to anything else! My thoughts drifted to the delightful carts in the markets in Florence and my wheels began to turn.
Trailer seems like such a mundane word for this project so I now refer to it as my gypsy cart!
Remembering a design I made for a letter boxing project turned to a graphic for my Out On A Limb line, I began to play with the tree image.
Proportions of the original design match the back gate of the gypsy cart, so that will be easy. Next, I began to play with the tree and expanded it. Now the plan for the sides will be and extended play of the tree morphed into 3 different trees!
Working along the “green” lines, I’m choosing to use the paint I have on hand … let’s see what we come up with!
