There's no place like gnome - Patricia Basson

Hi and Hello to all...
Today I am sharing a fun little project for the September Moodboard Challenge at Dusty Attic
Using four different sizes from the Tag Medley sheet, I created this wall Hanging with the cutest little Gnomes!


Although there is a lot going on on the Tags, the treatment of the chipboard is not that complicated. I covered the Tags with two papers from 49 & Market's Vintage Artistry Essentials collection, Savor and Essence. I inked the edges with Potting Soil Archival Ink ~lol, no that was not purposely, totally coincidentally~, and Vintage Antiquing Paste from Stamperia.

I gesso'd all the Chipboards. On the Vase, Juliette Balcony and Inside piece of the Brick Window, I applied white cackling paste. Once it was dried and crackled I panted them with Ivory and Cappuccino Allegro Paint also from Stamperia. I once again used the Antiquing Paste to bring out the cracks and add an aging effect to the pieces.

I painted some Antiquing Paste onto the raw  Bicycle Chain chipboard. I glued a piece of acetate to the back of the windows and colored it with Cappuccino Glitter Accents and Rose Gold Metallic Alloy Alcohol inks from Couture Creations.

The Grasses and Mini Foliage were all painted with Ivory, Cappuccino and Earth Paints. I also embossed them with an Irredesant Sparkle embossing powder. The gorgeous Moon was covered with Gold River Leafing from Mont Marte...Just love how beautiful it looks!
The two adorable Gnomes were painted using a Watercolor set from 13@rts. 
I sadly did not take a side view photo to show all the layering that was done! Even the Beards of the Gnomes are layered. 
I added Flowers, Rub-on Transfers and Wishing Bubbles and Trinkets from Vintage Artistry Essentials as well.

Please have a look at the Dusty Attic On-line shop for all of these and many more, and do take part in the monthly Moodboard Challenge here on the Dusty FANattics Facebook page.

Thank you for your Visit, Happy Crafting...

Far away in the land of "If and Perhaps"
The city of "Make-Believe" lies,
With its wonderful, beautiful towers and domes
And turrets that reach the skies;
'Tis peopled by fairies, pixies, and gnomes,
And nobles and ladies fair,
And the poorest gamin that walks the streets
Is a prince if he enters there...
