Valentine Gnome Plus More!


As I mentioned earlier this month February is my anniversary month. It is February 15th to be exact, making February's Valentine's Day very special to me. I get to celebrate all month of course!

I have fallen for the latest painting trend "Gnomes." What a cute idea to celebrate my favorite holiday. I saw two very cute ideas on Pinterest and combined the elements of both for this anniversary watercolor collage. The designs I borrowed from were "The Social Easel Online Paint Studio" and "KLM Designs."

I added cut paper hearts to the painting and wrote the cute sayings in marker. The same Sharpie Ultra Fine Permanent Marker used to outline the painted Gnome.

I used Winsor Newton Cotman tube colors on Arches paper. The colored hearts were glued on each fold using Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue.

This was such fun to work on. I appreciate that I could put something so cute together, combining elements found online to make it mine.

That first gnome was such fun that I needed to make a few more. Here's are two Artist Gnomes and one Hippy Guitar Player:
