Book Page Eggs

i had some fun with paper mache eggs...thought i might share the fun...

these sweet little vintage inspired eggs were so much fun to make! let's look at some of the steps shall we?

i tore a few dictionary pages into strips and pieces...

use matte glue n seal to glue the strips onto the paper mache egg...overlap and brush over the top of the paper as you go...


allow the eggs to dry completely...i love that the glue n seal leaves the paper with no sticky feel and perfectly matte....it is my favorite!!

i cut some of the vintage postcards from my seasonal paper stash...

i inked up the edges with walnut stain distress ink and my blending tool...

i wanted my leaves to look older then they are...so i inked sprayed them with water, dabbed vintage photo stain on them, blotted them, then dried them with my heat tool...i really like out they turned out!

then the fun part...layers of vintage and vintage looking embellishments...

a little crepe paper, snips of tulle, millinery flowers...the leaves and the cards...

they make me happy...

really really happy...perhaps it's all the pink...or simply the vintage deliciousness of it all...

as always, thank you for visiting...that makes me happy too!

I had a look to your studio pictures.... and somethink I wonder is if you can remember all the stuff you have when you start a new work? i don't have half the stuff you have and sometimes I discover little things I have no idea I had them!!!...lol...
