Hi all, Heather here today. As Easter is on its way I wanted to make some eggs for the kids. I picked up some ugly florescent green eggs from the store. They are quite large and I thought I could really stuff some goodies in there for the kids.
I actually made one for Maksim and one for Olivia, I let them pick their colours and got their creative input on during the process. Olivia wanted pinks of course.
After lots of layers decoupaging tissue paper to cover up the horrid green I finally got a base down.
And after playing around with some brusho's, it was time to just add all the details and pretties.
Lots of beautiful texture, Maksim wanted to add some pops of blue, wasn't a fan of the purple after the fact.
Olivia totally loved hers, between the little surprises hidden with in all the flowers.
I love how these turned out I used a ton of flowers, between Botanical, Darjeeling and some older Petaloo from my stash I have been waiting for the perfect project to use them on.
With a little white washing with some gesso, I now get to have the fun off filling the eggs with lots of goodies for the kids.
Happy Easter to all and only time spent with friends and family.
