We Love 2 Create – No Gnome to Go To?!

Hello, how’s it going?

Time for a new monthly challenge at WE LOVE 2 CREATE which is always ‘Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes’ and we are sponsored by the amazing POLKADOODLES!! Our winner will receive a fabulous prize so check out the blog for details.
I have had an assortment of MDF plaques for goodness knows how long so thought it was about time I used one.
I began my project by covering the base with gesso and then spread texture paste through the gorgeous POLKADOODLES ‘POINSETTIA/HOLLY’ STENCIL.
Once dry I sprayed, splashed and splattered with various sprays, paint and waxes, adding mica flakes for luck (crikey I thought glitter, sequins and micro beads got everywhere). 
I coloured this fabulous GNOME stamp with watercolour markers and scribbled around him with a fine liner.

Main Stamp Image & Sentiment: POLKADOODLES ’25 DECEMBER’
Colouring: Watercolour Markers
Colouring Paper: Watercolour
The Rest: POLKADOODLES ‘GREAT OUTDOORS’ PAPER PACK - Gesso – Texture paste - Cosmic Shimmer Ink Stains - Imagination Crafts Starlight Gold Paint & Gold & Black Waxes – Gold Mica Flakes – Tonic Nuvo Gold Glitter Drops - White acrylic paint splatters – Fabric – Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide
