Garnet Hill Bunny Rug Knock-Off

Its hard to find great Easter decorations, but this little bunny spoke to me.

I got this gem of a frame at the goodwill for $5.99.  I put on a coat of white paint on the canvas and the frame so that I could start fresh!

I began looking through my inpiration books ( I will be posting about those soon.), and I found this little guy in Garnett Hill.  It was a rug, but I knew that I could make it work into a painting.

I painted the canvas rosemary green from Benjamin Moore.  I added a little black to darken it some. 

I was going to free hand him, but I had to substitute teach at school today and used their opaque projector.  I love that little machine.

I blew it up and traced lightly in pencil.  I know it is hard to see, but look very closely and the little bunny is peeking through.  If you don't have an opaque projector laying around you could blow up a photo copy of the bunny to your desired size and cut out and trace. 

I painted it with some acylic paints that I had on hand using my magazine pic as a color guide.  Its almost like a paint  by number.  Anyone can do this!  I painted the frame brookside moss from Benjamin Moore.

Have a great DAY!
