The Secret Garden - Part 1

Good Morning! The sun is shining and it's a beautiful spring morning.  It reminds me of one of my favorite Graphic 45 paper lines, Secret Garden, so I've started working on this project using that paper.  It's divided into two parts because I'm recovering from a total knee replacement and not working very fast.  Part 2 will be posted in a couple of weeks.

Did you ever have your own secret garden?  A place where you felt totally safe and at peace?

These are the main pieces of the gazebo.  From Gypsy Soul Laser cuts coming soon.

The connecting pieces, top, bottom and one side piece.

There is a mini album that slides into the gazebo.

I used Gilder's Paste African Bronze because it has an interesting combination of green and gold and will be a nice background for all of the flowers that will be on the gazebo and the mini album.  I tried to apply it with this applicator that I've had for a long time.  It didn't work, so I just applied it with a regular applicator.

This is the constructed gazebo. There's only one side piece so the mini album will slide inside it.

This is the gazebo with the mini album inside.

More to come in two weeks.
