Just a quick GNOTE.

Hello! I’m popping in with some orange gnome-y goodness late tonight. I’ve had this little colored gnome sitting on my desk for a while just waiting for the right background. And the right background turned out to be a super quick one that I made using watercolor paper, Distress Markers, and a bit of water.

How? Well, I scribbled four different colors of marker on a large acrylic block and then spritzed with water to make the colors juicy. I then placed a piece of watercolor paper over the block and picked up the ink. The color was still a bit choppy so I spritzed with more water so they would blend more. Once dry (heat tools are awesome) I smashed the paper onto the block to pick up a few more leftover splotches for extra texture. You could also achieve the same look using mini ink pads.

For embellishment I just used a couple of sequins and a bit of washi tape.
