Gnome advice welcome!

Because I can't draw what I see in my mind's eye, I am rarely successful in freeform design. So I went with something very angular. Sadly, my gnome apartment looks boring and sterile. I even tried melting silvery Angelina fibre to simulate reflective windows... 2 thumbs down! Now I'm reluctant to embellish it for fear of tarting it up.
Please feel free to suggest improvements. The block wasn't exactly straight when I shot it, although the crookedness you see in the roof is intentional. Also, there's more white fabric around the house, so I can add embellishments or details on all/any side.
And here's my little cliche, the gnome toadstool.


  1. Oh my gosh, I am the wrong person to ask - free form is so challenging for me! I wanted to make an Airstream RV for my gnome, but I knew I would make a dog's breakfast out of it. I love the toadstool!

  2. It's cute and the toadstool is WAY cute.

  3. Oooh, ooh this is awesome! I love your house! It's so creative and very cool for a gnome of some standing!

    Light fixtures outside? Chimney? Shutters? Tree? Hedgehog? The toadstool cliche is awesome!

  4. I think it's cute. I haven't tackled mine yet because I can't settle on a design. I guess my thought is "less is more" and I would leave it be and not add anything.

  5. It's wonderful! And so is the toadstool!
