Strawberry gnome

Hi everyone!

Today I want to introduce you to my new little friend: the strawberry gnome! 
I found this cute enchanted creature on a charmed booth, during the most magical fair that takes place in my town: the Hobby Show (…my brain is still recovering from the hypnosis caused by all those sparkling beads)! 

Once I got home, I realized that, as any fairy tale creature, also my new friend needed enchanted surroundings in which he could happily live.
So I started working: I took a glass dish and decorated it with rice paper (using a technique called decoupage). Then, I made little strawberries with polymer-clay and I attached them next to the gnome, together with some flowers and ribbon. Last, but not least, I gave him a small companion: the cheerful hedgehog! They became very good friends...

...and lived happily ever after.
