I am so excited that spring is almost here!! I can't wait to work at my art desk and stare out at green trees and grass instead of boring brown and gray! Here is a little happy bunny picture that I made for my post at the Eclectic Paperie today.- I mean what doesn't say spring more than cute bunnies and bunting flags!!
"Begin each day with a little courage, a little curiosity, and a little spring in your step!"
I always start off with my sketchbook. I knew I wanted a bunny, I just didn't know what type to draw.
For Christmas my mom gave me a box of pieces of wood 'canvas' pieces! I must be really easy to please because this was one of the best Christmas presents!! I used one of these wood pieces as my base. I took some teal paint and mixed it with white and covered the whole piece with the teal/white mix. Then I used the Chevron Grunge stencil with just teal to create my background!
Next I took out the Simple Stories Daily Grind Paper. I cut out the triangles for bunting and tore the green for the grass. I used gel medium and glued all the pieces down.
After the paper was dry I took my Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and made little circles with my fingers. After the paste dried I painted it with coordinating colors! Love how the embossing paste gives me some texture to my project!
I printed out a little saying, "Begin each day with a little courage, a little curiosity, and a little spring in your step!" Then I doodled and used some rub-ons to finish the project!!
I hope you all have a very happy day and a wonderful weekend!! Thank you SO much for stopping by my blog today. Make sure you also stop by the wonderful Eclectic Paperie today!
