Path of Positivity: Garden Party


Happy Monday!
I hope you are staying safe and well.

Today is my midway post for the Path of Positivity challenge.

This month the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Gratitude.

Prizes this month include:
  • 3 images from SheepSki Designs our guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants. 
  • ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
Our optional theme this month is Gratitude
This is at the perfect time of year to reflect on all the good you have in your life. Therefore, this month, create a project that depicts gratitude to thankfulness in some way.

Please remember in order to be eligible for the prizes your project must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way.

I used a fun digi stamp from SheepSki Designs . It is called Garden Party #202.

Just colouring this stamp made me chuckle. The look on the faces of the gnomes really tickles me. Laughter is a wonderful thing. A good laugh releases endorphins and makes you feel so much better in yourself and, if that laughter is shared with others, it is priceless. Laughter boosts your mood and relieves stress. I am grateful that I have people around me  that make me laugh. 

 I coloured my gnomes with Copic markers and finished them with Polychromo pencils. I fussy cut them, leaving a thin, white border. I added some Glossy Accents to their noses. 
The gnomes sky background is blended Distress Oxides in Stormy Sky and Seedless Preserves. I splattered some water droplets to bleach out the colour and simulate snowflakes. 
I die cut some textured red card to frame the party gnomes and also die cut the silver glitter snowflake banner and the sentiment.

Many thanks to SheepSki Designs, this month's guest sponsor,

and to Scribbles Designs as the ongoing sponsor of the challenge

We would love to see your creations! 
Just make sure that your entry is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way!
