Hanging with my Gnomey!

Oh my gome-ness....it's gnome cuteness today with TWO new stamp releases from Susan K. Weckesser/ Unity
And I got the privilege on naming BOTH of them !!
Thank you Susan for that honor!)


I wanted to use mine in my art journal so I made my Gnomey from the What's Up Gnomey stamp set into a BIG Gnomey with some Gnome-mous mushrooms to go along with him. All you have to do is stamp your design on a piece of paper and then enlarge it to the size you need. At this size he was super easy to paper piece him together using Susan K. Weckesser's whimsical papers.

I wrote inspirational words over the mushrooms, just repeating the same word over and over. It's more for texture than anything else. Sakura Moonglow pens are a lot of fun to play with.

Yep, he is just an silly, ordinary, everyday fungi...get it? fun - guy? ( That pun came from Cheryl Boglioli and it was too cute to pass up and not use it! lol The little sticker letters came from Frosted Designs store.

I used Puffy paint for his facial hair. I love the 3 dimension look of it along with his cute little nose and eyes all pop dotted up.

More graffiti style lettering and playing with Gnome puns along with my Sakura Moonglow pens.
