I downloaded this digi image from a craft magazine's website... I thought he looked really cute. This one was called a DIY image as it was a separate gnome and two different sets of hands. This one holding a gingerbread man and another holding a bauble. The problem arose in trying to put the hands in a credible place on the gnome. I worked in Word and had to use a text box to place the hands appropriately. I made the box transparent and when I had the size and position as good as I could get them, I removed the lines from the text box and printed him. I think it looks as though the hands are emerging through his beard.
He's coloured with alcohol pens and after cutting out, popped onto dimensional pads.
The 'merry' is stacked and the lower gold layers just slightly offset, to give a little more dimension.
A snowy sky (Sheena Douglass) and (Memory Box) tree lined hillside completed the scene.
