Thyme to meet FATHER SNOW

DO NOT PIN MY PHOTOS TO PINTEREST
Father Snow is a new design that I just completed for 
Painting With Friends!


I love to go junking for pieces to add to my 
painting "stash"

Old wood antique iron boards make
wonderful surfaces to paint on


I used a very LARGE stippler brush to paint the background


I leave some of the original background showing thru for a nice prim look!
I stenciled on some snow flakes for the background. 
To give your painting depth and dimension paint some of the snowflakes in a lighter shade. They will then appear to be in the distance.


Now the fun part!
Painting the design!


the 
SNOWMAN


 and now to paint
FATHER SNOW!



I love painting BEARDS and FUR!


They take a lot of patience!


Adding some fur and details!



And his face!


and 
CANDY CANE!


The TWIG TREE and SNOWIES!


LOTS 
of
DIAMOND DUST
for
SPARKLE!


   
The
BALSAM Tree


even 
SPARKLES!


I even addded
 tiny BELLS
to
FATHER SNOW'S
shoes!


I also made some
FAUX SNOWBALLS
and
added a tutorial to make them in the pattern packet!



There is a lot of work that goes into a pattern packet
Painting instructions, line drawings and photos!
Typing is my LEAST favorite part of making a pattern packet

It ALWAYS helps to have a room with a view!!!


You may purchase the pattern packet for
FATHER SNOW
in my pattern shop

Happy Painting!
Lynn
