Joyeux Gnome!

Happy Friday everyone and thank you for stopping by the blog today!  

Steph here with a cute little Christmas frame project for you.
The focal point of my frame is the cutest little Christmas gnome. 
Poor guy has slipped on the ice and is sliding across the snow on his little bum. 
I love the contrast of the "Joyeux Noel" and the look on his face 
indicating he is not so joyous at the moment. 
Please take a minute and scroll through the pictures and be sure to check out the 
supply list at the bottom of the post. 
I hope this little guy puts you in a Joyeux mood! 

Lately, I have been mentioning what great gifts some of our projects will make. 
Well, I actually have the person who is going to receive this all picked out already.
I am so excited to surprise her with this on Christmas. 
She will be able to add a photo of her little gnomes and change the focal point of the frame. 

All supplies for this project were obtained from Altered Pages. 
The frame comes as a blank wooden "canvas" ready for your imagination and creativity to bring it to life. 
The papers are from the "Joyeux Noel" set from Glitz.
The collage image is one of many great images from Altered Pages as well. 
I used a couple different versions of fibers as well as paper flowers and glass glintz...
all from Altered Pages. 

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you have a fun, joyous holiday season.
Be careful on that ice & snow!!!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
