Photos of my newest Girl Gnome creation, hand made by felting wool. She takes on the adventure of the beach during crashing waves and wind, on to the garden to smell the flowers. Hope you enjoy. :O)
One of many meditation videos by Amazing Gnomes, hoping to inspire the seeking of quieter places with water as the focus for flow and breath, peace and connectivity. All with a little magic :O) with a little felted amazing gnome.
Hope you enjoy this short video :O)
A bit of history (only a few months ago in the past but for all that has transpired – feels like a long time ago) – when the amazing gnomes concept was first decided to be a go – it was in tandem with the idea to make some entertainment out of the cute wool felt sculptured gnomes – I knew that eventually there would be a Youtube channel before I even knew how to use the format – only that I would need lots of photos and some ideas and to act on them and get some content going on. Today was the day! Starting out with the basics, a slide show featuring some photos and some Gnomespirations, and a little video tour of the beach bellow the house where the gnomes love to adventure – a little bit of fun in the sun. Posting to all the social media platforms can take all day, Instagram is so far my favorite (you can find me by artistleahwilson), though Youtube may be soon to take the lead. :O) having fun and getting stuff done.
Almost complete a new handmade felted playscape featuring a little gnome and his friend Owl – my most favorite owl to date – so super compact from needle felting – it has a heart on its bum but you can’t see it unless you hold it upside down :O) because of Valentines Day – thought it would be good to feature the Owl in a new Gnomespiration. Makes me happy to make these things – hope you like them too.
HEARTS on BUMS: All about the love.
When designing the Amazing Gnomes, and as an artist generally, I have a strong belief in being responsible with my creative endeavors -being conscious of my intention – and then to share the things made with the world. It is always about the love. So to honor that – each handmade wool fiber felted Gnome has a heart on their bum, most mushrooms or little sculptures have the same marking. This has become a signature of sorts for my work, while sharing the love.
Thank you for reading, and being witness to my process.
