It is thyme for a WINTRY DAY


WINTRY DAY 
is a new design
 inspired 
by 
Terrye French
and
painted by me for
Painting With Friends



Terrye French 
designed this piece many years ago 
but
 never made it into a pattern
She sent me this photo as 
"inspiration"
to put the design into an E-Pattern


I decided to call my project
WINTRY DAY
It was a fun packet to put together and paint!
I hope you have fun with it also!

Years ago I had purchased this
 SHEEP checkerboard 
as an unfinished wood packet
I decided to use it as a 
TEMPLATE 
to create the SHEEP shape for
WINTRY DAY



I changed it up a bit and made the legs detachable like Terrye's


I do a lot of
 DRY brushing 
when painting



It gives a "softer" look



This was really a fun piece to paint



When painting this piece I added lots of
 sparkle using 
DIAMOND DUST!



I decided to attach my 
SHEEP
to a grapevine wreath
I added lots of various greens and berries



AND
 Of course more 
DIAMOND DUST
for
sparkle!!!!


I then made a 
WINTRY DAYS  BANNER
for
my wreath



I included a
 TUTORIAL
on
 banner making 
in the packet!


Banners are so much fun to make


 and 
can be used for so many projects!!!


I even decided to make some
SHEEP


bowl fillers!!!



 using my favorite
cinnamon ornamental dough recipe


I hope you enjoy painting 
WINTRY DAY
as much as I have!!!



You can purchase 
my
WINTRY DAY 
e-pattern


Happy Painting!
