Another Decorated Egg...


Good morning everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  As for me I have one word.....Taxes!  Nuff said?  I thought so!

This morning I want to share with you my latest decorated egg that will be going in the basket for my Husband for Easter.  It is a chicken egg that was blown, washed and dried.  Now before you get all crazy, this beauty is an extra large egg, but I also zoomed in on it with the camera so you could see it better.  No injured chickens here!  I painted this one green and then used some pretty binding around the middle.  Next I punched some vellum sprigs and then I colored some flowers that were in my stash.   Of course everything was sprayed with shimmer sprays just as a final dressing.   The stems I cut off the bottom of the flowers were then curled round a paint brush and everything was hot glued to the egg.  Maybe next year I will have to time to do some more; maybe a little ornate.  Flowers are nice and Springy looking but I will need to do different things each year to add to the mix. 

Well that is it for me this morning.  What are you doing today?  I hope you have time for some creative fun...and as always.....remember to "Breathe"!!

Hi Glenda,

Holy moly - this egg is beautiful! Wow. You are one talented lady - too bad we don't live in the same town and can get together! You inspire me to try new things.

I did my taxes last weekend too. Luckily I get a little bit back... not too much but I don't have to pay!

It was funny when I made the raven ATC - and noticed the upside down text. It doesn't stand out like a sore thumb, which is nice. That's the only one of that design that I made so I think I'll make more and get it right!

We got about six inches (easily) of snow last night. My lilacs were blooming and now they are bent over with the weight of the snow. I imagine the kiddies may be hunting Easter eggs indoors this year!

Hugs,
Kay
