Welcome to my blog!! If you are just finding my little corner of the world for the first time, WELCOME!! I am SO glad to have you visit! I am always amazed how mixed media, scrapbooking and art can use the same materials but be so different from artist to artist! I love meeting new people and seeing what they create - so please say HI!!
Today, my journal is from the prompt, What Makes You Smile!! And you know, Garden gnomes make me smile. I love them. I think they are cute, whimsical and friendly!! I actually have one in my yard . . . but just one . . . he might need a friend soon!!
So here is my gnome for today. Just simple and fun!!
The background is a gelli printed tissue paper. I used matte medium to glue it down and covered it with clear gesso to create a 'canvas!'
I sketched on my design and then painted them in!
I wanted some texture on the page, so I used a Linnie Blooms Canvas Sunshine shape. I put a stencil on top of it and used two different sprays to create my sun!
Some doodling, some stamping and a quote for the tag and DONE!
