The bunny hopped into my art when I didn’t even expect a visitor! I was stuck and stalled- feeling very uncreative so I just grabbed a paper and pencil and drew random lines all over it. Then a few colors to start filling them in. That’s when the bunny appeared. He didn’t bring me chocolate – he brought me something better- inspiration!
I found the bunny but then had that frozen feeling- no inspiration and no idea where to take it next.
I was getting frustrated so I decided to try something I rarely do – used black as the background. I totally hated it – even a day later. Yuck.
I cut out the bunny and tossed the black. I found another background I made long ago.
A bit of pan pastel and a Julie Balzer stencil. I tend to fill the entire page with a pattern so this time I decided to only do part of the page.
Colored in the leaves with Crayola crayon and gelatos for the flowers.
White oil pastel to make the flowers pop a bit more than they were.
Added the cut out bunny and a new black line around it.
Added Easter related words to the bunny with a Pitt pen.
My kids are not little any more but you’d think they were 4 years old since they have made it very clear they really really really want our Easter traditions to continue- so we’re cooking up an egg hunt to challenge them. Every year we have a different theme to the egg hunt and crazy clues to find the eggs. (Why did we start this? Should have just hidden eggs.) I wonder if they will still be over early Easter morning when they are 35!
Hope you had a wonderful Easter!
