*Disclaimer* No smurfs were harmed in the making of this piece...

When I saw this embroidered mushroom all I could think about was smurfs dancing around it with tons of psychedelic colors. And I got it for 2 bucks not the marked price.


This is a scan so you can see the details. The finished piece is on an 8x10 canvas.


I decoupaged pages out of magazines down, then splatter painted on top. I then glued sequins on the shrooms and glued that and the smurfs down. Then I mod podged the foot to cardboard and put springs on the back to  raise it above everything else. Then I painted the lyrics to the smurf theme song down. This was so much fun to make, I hope you like it!

Damn! Now I have that smurfin' smurf song stuck in my head!

I do like your creation even though it has infected my brain.

Good work!
