I used some cute Woodland wooden cutouts from Alpha Stamps to make a couple of gnome projects. Each little gnome is about 2" tall, so I used the tiniest of brushes to paint them. I had a ring box that had just enough room to house one, so I put a scrapbook paper background in there and locked him away.
The mushrooms are also painted cutouts; the butterfly was cut from a collage sheet.
Here’s a set of four gnome buddies.
They needed somewhere to be, so I cut out a background of black scrapbook paper and added a moon from a Cosmos Bark paper. The base of the gnomes was painted black and grey to blend in with the background. These little gnomes can stand on their own, so they may end up just living on my desk as is, but I might add them to the front of a book or box. No matter where they end up, I think they’re adorable.
I still have woodland cutouts left: squirrels, hedgehogs, acorns and leaves. I need to get cracking!
