Hanging Spring Egg

As Spring is finally here, we start to think about decorating our homes with flowers, and Easter decorations.

I covered the Papier Mache egg with a coating of Gesso. When dry I painted the outside of the egg in Grandmas Teacup.

The inside needs some colour too, so I added some Grandmas Teacup to the top and Peppermint tea paint on the bottom.


I flicked some white paint on the outside of the egg, to add some speckling


I stamped the images with an Archival Black ink pad, and then cut them out.

Some real twigs from the forest became a spring tree. I added some pink Flowersoft to the branches to look like lovely cherry blossom. I put a good covering of texture paste inside the base of the egg.


I fixed the tree, deers, and rabbits into the texture paste.


When the paste was dry, I coated it with some pva glue, and sprinkled some green Flowersoft inside for grass.
