After all the bears I’ve been creating I changed things up a bit. The weather here in Minnesota is getting warmer and it’s starting to feel like spring so I got inspired to create this silly goose with her flowers. I used to do a lot more gardening myself but have scaled back to only one garden area and keep the rest of my yard edged with Hostas. I have several varieties of them to border the yard so I planted them in a mixed pattern. The one spot I do have flowers planted in is the front yard in front of the steps, I love driving up the driveway and seeing them in bloom. The blooming season is short so I have to enjoy them while we have them.
So I headed to my craft room to play with paper and this silly goose was born. She loves to garden and sit amoung the flowers!

Start out by cutting out all the pieces in the file.
Next I shaded the edges with my ColorBox Chalk Queue Ink Pad.
I LOVE these for ease of use and the look that I get from them. I choose a darker color than the paper and brush the chalk over the edges, if there are corners you have trouble getting into I chalk up a Q-tip and use that.
Next I ink up a Pom Pom on a clip with pink ColorBox Chalk Queue Ink Pad and highlight the cheeks.
One more tip I’d like to impart…after trying many types of glue I recommend Art Institute Glitter Designer glue, it dries clear and has a little give, a lot of glues I’ve tried once you lay it down you can’t move it…this is a fast drying glue but you can move it around right after you place it and I rarely get my pieces perfect the first time LOL. I use it with the Art Glittering System Ultra Fine Metal Tip for a more precision placement. Be sure you don’t accidentally grab your sewing pin and stop up the glue with it….I can say from experience that the pin rusts and turns the glue rust and black colored LOL.
Time to put him together! Its always good to do a dry run first to see where to glue, and then glue him together.
Last I add some highlight lines with a white Uni-ball Signo Angelic UM-120AC Gel Ink Pen 0.7 mm and he’s ready for your page, card, or wherever you’d like to put him!
