Mojo Monday 503

Monday, November 19, 2018
Hi friends! It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch! Hooray! Circles are the name of the game for this sketch. I added lots of layers, but you could easily create a simple layout by masking the circles with blended ink or using stamped shapes and a bit of washi. Take whatever inspiration you like from the sketch, just have fun and "do you".


This week my boys are off of school, so I thought this little chilling with my gnomies sentiment from the Gnome for the Holidays set was the perfect place to start! {grin} This little winter gnome makes me smile! I colored him with Arteza real brush markers and accented his hat and gloves with the crystal clear lacquer pen and then colored with a white gel pen. I'm keeping it real here and was a super sloppy colorer. I attempted to fix some of my booboos with some shading and a little wash around the image, but it just kind of did it's own thing. LOL. So out came the distress inks to give a nice yellow glow to the entire circle and I did the same treatment with the sentiment panel for continuity.



For embellishment, I matted the larger circle with the Star Rosette CutUps, then tucked in some paper stars cut with the 5 Snowflakes dies. to finish things off, I embossed a woven embossing folder on the card panel, then tied it off with a little stitched grosgrain and jingle bells.
