Altered Pages Challenge #13 - Elves & Gnomes

Altered Pages Challenge #13 - Elves & Gnomes
Hi everyone, are you excited about the holidays? How about a monthly challenge!
We are gearing up for Christmas over at Altered Pages & to kick off the season, our November Challenge theme is all about Elves & Gnomes!
So because of my love and passion for assemblage art and mixed media art dolls I created these little Elf Christmas ornaments
These little sweeties measure 3 inches at their widest point and 5.5 inches long and are made from pine and wire. I used the Elf and Gnomes collage sheet from and resized them using only their faces. I also used scraps from Graphic 45 "Christmas Emporium" and Glitz "Hello December" paper packs.
Through in some metal corners for wings and lots of scraggly wire. I created paper beads for their legs using the same papers as above.
Oh and you CANNOT forget their EARS!!!
 Elves must have ears!!! I created them out of sculpy clay and touched them up with a little dab of Ecogreen acrylic paint and a little dab of Gelatos all found at AP!!.
There's gonna be loads of fun going on over on the AlteredPages site as they host this months challenge. You will not only be able to enter your very own elf project but you will be able to vote on your favorite Design Team elf as well!! I Hope you will join in on the fun & link up your Elf project too!
Visit the Challenge page for more info!
So...  Tah Tah for now my artsy friends,
and have a very blessed artful week!!
