Gazebo Table Centrepiece

Hi - I know - the Gazebo again. But, this time for my DT project for Scrappy-Go-Lucky I thought I would try something a little different and made this 3D gazebo.

The base layer, the Gazebo, shadow and all layers are cut at 2 1/2". I've used the Gypsy for this design and imported 6 shadow images onto the mat. As both sides of the gazebo differ, I've flipped every second image, then slightly overlapped the edges before welding together.

To make it easy to join the ends of the gazebo, George & Basic Shapes was used to add 2 rectangles - sized at 1/2" - to weld to one side (you can just see them on the right side of the photo below).

As you lose some of the image when you overlap, I have cut an extra 3 single pieces of the shadow and adhered them to the 1st, 3rd and 5th gazebos on the row. These are also sized at 2 1/2".

All layers were then cut and adhered - making sure the pieces for the 2nd, 4th and last went under the top shadow pieces.

I have added rhinstones and extra glitter to the main 3 cuts as they stand out more. Below is a close-up of the layering where you can see the overlapping shadow piece.

A view from the top ...

By adding a vase of flowers to the centre, it has become a cute table centrepiece.

Hope you like it.

Till tomorrow,
Luv, Tereesa.
