Happy Birthday America
June 22, 2022
Hi Clear Scrap Fans, it's Sandy Diller here to share a holiday creation for you home.
The 4th of July will soon be here and I love the colors of our country. I've decorated this adorable gnome to celebrate the season.
I first covered the hat with alternating red and white strips of paper in a wave pattern. Next came the body that is covered in a blue plaid. I used a black marker to color in the feet.
Before the hair was added it was embossed to give texture and then edged with some brown ink. Every patriotic gnome needs a red bow.
I like to mix things up sometimes so I used the "Summer" from the Word n Shape Summer - Flip Flop. You will see the Flip Flops in another project. I painted the word blue to match the theme.
To make this little gal stand up I used the base from one of the Frameables, covered with paper and then added some grass using a die from my stash.
