Happy Easter! Can you believe we have snow in the forecast for tonight after several days this past week with temperatures in the 70s? Not that I'm complaining as I do love snow!
For my project today, I altered a plastic egg that I purchased at JoAnn's. I started by covering it with a layer of Tim Holtz tissue paper. As I could still see the pink egg underneath, I gave it another layer of the tissue paper. Unfortunately, I could still see the pink color. I should have given it a coat of gesso first. Next, I decided to cover the outside of the egg with a lacy fabric to try to tone down the pink color. I wasn't quite happy with the result but continued on! I then applied some lace trims, braiding and pearls around the opening. Taking a small twig wreath, I glued the egg to it as a base and then gave it a coat of gesso. After that, I placed some moss inside the egg and stood a Tim Holtz paper doll in the moss. A tiny bunny was added in front the of girls' feet. Flowers from Tim Holtz and Prima were tucked into the moss. A seam binding bow was the finishing touch.
Here you can see the back of the egg somewhat. I also added some Prima flowers around the wreath base.
Here are a couple of photos from each side.
Well, that's it for me today. I wish everyone a happy, blessed Easter. Enjoy your Sunday.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by. I appreciate your kind comments. Have a wonderful week ahead!
