Gnome painting – Intense Pencils

My lovely friend has a ‘Christmas Gnome thing’ and I wanted to surprise her with a table runner. Using Derwent Inktense pencils, I coloured a stitched out digital pattern from My Creative stitches.

I must admit it was a bit of trial and error selecting the correct mix of Textile Medium and water and experimenting with the pencil strokes and depth of colour I required. I practiced on the recommended calico fabric which did a better result than the plain quilting cottons. The calico does not bleed like the plain cottons.

The runner was finished off with a red peeper border and green and white striped binding. Who does’t love a striped binding?

The runner was gifted yesterday and my friend loved it. Have you made some Christmas gifts this year? Let me know in the comments.
