Not all who wander are lost

Hello everyone,

I have another post for UmWow Studio today. I did so enjoy making this and I love how it turned out..

 I have made a mini art journal page and this is what it looks like :

The background was brayered with acrylic paints  The big black circle was made with a coffee mug. I used the rim...and yes I washed it and I am now using it for coffee again ! I painted the inside of the circle with white paint and then stamped with a variety of rubber stamps by VivaLasVegaStamps!

The chipboard I used was treated like this :

This is what it looks like when you take it out of it's package. 

I painted it with gesso, twice.... 

I coloured it with water colours (Prima confections) and added some details with pencils...

This is how it looks all coloured..

I added a layer of clear embossing powder over the top to protect the colours. 

This gnome stamp by VivaLasVegaStamps! is normally holding an umbrella but I just left that out and replaced it with the flower... 

How cute is he ??? 

And here is the finished project again ! 

I have used the flower on the left of this picture... this is a great set ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
