Wow! Over 2 months since my last post. Sheesh!
I finally took the time to complete some fun Easter/Spring decor.
Lovely specimens have been gracing blogland in all types and fashions...butterflies,
shoponalark on etsy
spiders, flowers, shells, hearts...you get the pictures.
I unloaded my spring tubs from the garage a couple of weeks ago and found a hideous egg topiary I had tried to put together last year. Simple ugly. So, tore it apart and created a framed egg specimen display.
Each egg is cut in half (tricky when some are plastic) and I needed to hot glue some spanish moss on the edges to hide where the paint had chipped. I actually like that part. Then, I glued each egg to a piece of sheet music that I distressed with a little of Tim Holtz distress ink (THE BOMB!) I use it on everything...paper, fabric, paint. Since this was an old frame I found in the closet and of course, is missing a backing, I used semi-permenant glue dots to attach the sheet music to the frame glass. The 3D effect is nice.
Here is the finished pieced on my buffet, Baxter.
Looks like an Eggapalooza, if you ask me.
So, there is my new addition to the Easter Collection of crap to dust.
What have you added this season?
