Gollum Goes Fishing Art Journal Page

Hi Inky Friends, here today with an art journal page featuring Gollum & fish. I had so much fun making this page! I was inspired by the brick background to use Tim Holtz's crazy cats. From there I thought alley, garbage, graffiti... I had this magazine cut out from a nail polish ad with this fantastic color on a drum and figured that would pass as an artistic garbage can. 

The graffiti words are from my computer, colored with distress stain, really like how they turned out. Some subtle spray stencil in the background to make the "alley" more grungy. Finally added Gollum which is a photo of the Weta Workshop figurine found online. I highlighted some of the areas with pen to help them pop. Over all just love this one cause it makes me giggle!! I am entering this in the Simon Says Monday Challenge. Their theme is "Wish" which helped to inspire me with one of my favorite Gollum quotes. In fact I spent a good part of yesterday walking around singing this song & giggling. Ah art.
***UPDATE: Golum was chosen as one of the Designer Spotlight Winners!!!! YAY. 
 #152 Karen Bearse – Andrea says: Any project that can make Gollum look kind of cute gets my vote! I thought this wishful creation was so out-of-the-box clever with its theme and I love how Karen created an entire scene that tells an interesting story!


  1. Oh my goodness! I smiled from ear to ear when I saw this clever project! I have to say that this is the first crafty piece of art I've ever seen that incorporates Gollum! Although I adore the works Tolkien, I can't say that I've ever enjoyed looking at Gollum! But your project is so fabulous that Gollum is (dare I say it) just a little bit endearing here! How could I not smile at this totally fun scene? You've inspired me to combine all sorts of non-matching things and I'm so glad you shared this 100 million percent original art piece with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

    1. Wow thank you Andrea for those awesome words!!! Gollum is misunderstood at times, I think this does capture his softer side!
