  5. Tear tissue paper into pieces and scrunch up. Use a pencil to trace bunny pattern on burlap paper and cut out with scissors. Use a 3/4 flat brush to adhere grass/tissue paper and bunny with Matte Medium. Brush on canvas first, then seal over the top. Use a #8 round brush to add "stitches" to bunny in Rustic. Use oil pastels in blue and pink for eyes, cheeks and ears.
