Not only that, but I also only just managed to get back in time to take part in the Every Inchie Monday challenge for this week, as well as the Tag Tuesday challenge. Gulp. As the inchie challenge week finishes today, I thought I had better get cracking on that one first. The theme for this week was "mirthful". That immediately made me think of jolly old garden gnomes with their red apple cheeks and their twinkly eyes and their ever present mirthful laugh. The gnome image came from a book I have had for 30 years, and which I adore, simply titled "Gnomes", by Rien Poortvliet and Wil Huygen.
Here it is then, my "mirthful" inchie -
It turned into a bit of a 3-dimensional inchie, because of his rather big cap. I scrunched it and pulled it straight up, and I quite like the effect.
Thats it for now, got sooooooooo much reading to do and Tag Tuesday challenge tag to make.
