Pickets are a personal favorite of mine to paint and I have a number of picket patterns which have been designed for the different seasons. The various patterns are designed so that you can use both sides of the picket surface. The pickets I used are available from Creative Arts Lifestyle.
This Christmas pattern is a whimsical look at Santa's village where his reindeer are kept until Christmas Eve. In Santa's world he has a peppermint moon, peppermints adorn the fences and hide in the windows. Gumdrops safely sit on the snow as decoration.
I have used a number of interesting stencils in the background of this piece: Deco Art Andy Skinner Whirlpool stencil, star stencil, and mini snowflake stencil from Creative Arts Lifestyle. I use stencils that I love, you should feel free to use stencils that you love. They may not be the stencils used in the pattern but will work equally as well once you add the detail and techniques shown in the pattern. Always feel free to substitute what you have whether it is paint colors or stencils.
