Thyme for The FOLK Side

The FOLK Side
 is a new design that I have just completed
for 
PAINTING WITH FRIENDS
Design was inspired
 by 
Terrye French


I found this old cutting board at a thrift shop


It made a wonderful surface for this design.
This pattern would look great on many surfaces though!


I only lightly sanded my surface. 
I did not seal it so it would have a prim look!
The knife marks on this old cutting board add even more character and texture!


I used a circle template from 
Artist Loft
 to make my pennies on this design.
You can find a templete like this 
in the fine art section of a craft store 
or 
with drafting supplies.


I taped off my center section of the
"penney rug" and painted it Lamp Black


I then used my circle template along with a
 cosmetic sponge


 to quickly stencil the pennies on


 I then used a WHITE graphite paper to transfer the main
parts of my design on


Once these are painted you can proceed to transferring  
all the remaining details






I use a fine line writing pen from
 Lowell Cornell
 to paint all my blanket stitches around a design




The fine line writing pen takes a little getting used to 
but it is so much easier for details than a liner brush!


Painting the SHEEP


Now to add the remaining details!



This was a fun design to paint!!
I hope you have enjoyed following along!


You can purchase
my E-pattern 
for
The FOLK Side


Happy Painting!
Hugs,
Lynn
