Captured Gnomes and Jailbird

excessfroufrou(7)May 2, 2011

I was inspired by a pic that PurpleMoon posted a while back, so I created these prisoner gnomes and then I got carried away and made a jailbird too.

TOO FUNNY, frou! And I agree, the "jailbird" makes it! I bet there is some mumbling going on from those inmates...like "There's no place like gnome!"
Great painting, frou! TFS! Jeanne S.

That is so cute! Your gnomes look like they have some tools to help them break out. Good thing they have their striped uniforms to make them easy to find. Love your "jail bird" too! Hopefully he isn't a stool pigeon too!

They sure don't look too happy they got caught! You'll have to be the warden or you will be chasing them all over town as they are sure to make a run for it, well actually on the bird's back would be easiest as might be quite a climb down that pole. At least they have a good "lookout post" Nice paint job!! Jan

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!! You did a great paint job on the gnomes and jailbird. What a hoot they all are!
I'm so glad that photo I found of "captured gnomes" inspired you...cause this is just over-the-top CUTE!

I keep looking at the close-up photo, and each time I just grin practically ear to ear!

hugs, Karen

Cute idea. What are they in for ?
Nice paint job. I never thought about painting them different ways.
At least they didn't have to go to jail without their 'shrooms :) Still holdin' on to them. That's cute.
Is that the warden on the tree behind them?

PM, DH said they were over the top too, but he didn't add the cute part. Hmmmmm. Luna, now you've given me an idea with the stool pigeon comment. I could paint a pigeon like bird and stick him on a shroom.

That is too cute for words. I have some gnomes that are in need of a new paint job. Now to find a bird cage. Thanks for sharing and I'm sure there will be lots of jail birds hanging around this summer. :)
