Mixed Media with Shari: Gnome in a Dome

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

Happy Saturday!!! It’s Shari here with a fun project using our really popular Spring Gnomes stamp set.

I was looking to create a spring setup in one of the Tim Holtz Display Domes and discovered this little guy fits in there perfectly.

I stamped my gnome and colored him with Copic markers. I die-cut watercolor color paper using the Tim Holtz Funky Floral 2 and Garden Greens dies. Then I used various green paint on the greens and Spring colors on the small flowers.

Once all my pieces were colored, painted, and dry, I used some moss and hot glue to assemble everything together. Tip: The moss helps to hold everything upright for easy gluing.

I filmed a video showing how this came together!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are crafting this weekend and staying well. Enjoy!!
