Thyme for another bunny.........by Terrye French and some salt dough bunnies

Geeeezzzz....
there are bunnies
hopping around here everywhere
Here is a prim bunny board
I have painted
using a
TERRYE FRENCH 
design


I have had this pattern for a few years
and
I have painted it several times
for customers




I just  love the delicate details



the stitching that says welcome



the penney rug and crow

I was trying to get this piece finished up yesterday
BUT
got a little distracted
doing these


thanks to
my friend 
Colleen
she thought I'd be jazzed when I saw them......
AND
I was!
dropped the paintbrush last night
and
out came the mixer!
They look like little mini's of the bunny I was painting!!!!
they are not finished yet
and oh........
I had to make some carrots for them.....of course...
check back soon to see them finished!



::: Cinnamon Salt Dough :::

2 cups flour

1 cup salt

1 cup cinnamon

1 1/2 cups water

Mix dry ingredients together and add water to form a pliable dough. Knead several times before rolling out. Cover tightly until ready to use. Dust work surface with cinnamon and roll to a 1/4"-3/4" thickness, depending on your preferences. Use cookie cutters or paper templates and remember to poke a hole or two in each ornament before baking. Bake at 300º for 45-60 minutes, watching carefully toward the end of the baking time. Allow to cool and harden completely before hanging. May be sealed with wax or poly if desired.

Happy Painting!
