2021 Stash Bash #3 - Happy Birthday - A Gnome Trio


Hello, Crafty Makers!
I did not have a chance to use these adorable Gnomes last year. I think they are Christmas Gomes, but I am choosing to use them on a birthday card!
I did not use Distress Oxides for this project.  Instead, I used acrylic paints.  The paint adds texture and, in some cases, it makes the paper mimic the texture of the watercolor paper.  I am drawing inspiration from the work of Tracy Evans and Gerry of Gerry's Craftroom.  I want to use more unconventional objects in my crafting, and Gerry and Tracy have both given me a new perspective on how to go about doing using various techniques to accomplish my goal!
I used my oil pencils to color these images.  As noted in past blog posts, coloring is not one of my strong points.  When I was a child, my mother jokingly threatened to break all my crayons. She encouraged me to spend more time playing with my jacks or my Bolo bat! 
Mom would be proud.  I still have Skills!
Thanks for Stopping By!
