Thyme for a SPRING herb bunny

I've painted a SPRING thyme herb bunny
using
another great
Terrye French
Her body is wood
she has a skirt that I made from muslin
and painted


on the botton of her skirt I painted this sweet spring design


she has " jointed " wood body pieces
here she is showing
"some leg" LOL!
All her "body parts"
are wired together


I added some tiny heart buttons to the top of her
painted dress


she is holding an adorable litlle bunny box I've painted and filled
with sweet annie and lavender


I painted the word
SIMPLIFY
on her box
I added a small coffee stained tag
that says
herbs for sale


here she is holding her bunny box


She has the
SWEETEST
OF FACES


Oh My........!!!!!!
Her ears are made from muslin
I stiffened them using a mixture of
H2O and Elmers Glue
I added a coffee stained bow
made from cheesecloth
I then pinned on a rusty pin
her
"whiskers"
are rusty wire
and here she is all
"put together"


I always sign and date my pieces


on the back of her foot I painted a small carrot
then signed and dated her!
Isn't she "simply"
a breath of spring!!!!

Happy Painting!
Lynn
