Ribbon Rose Easter Egg
Now that Valentine's Day has been officially put away at my house, I'm on the hunt (pun intended) for all things Easter-ish. Actually to be honest, I am stick to death of snow, as pretty as it is and I'm ready for flowers!
Can you tell?
Wait, let me show you from the top so you can get the fully loaded effect!
I am not entirely sure what kind of egg this is...large that is what. It was predecorated, cut & with with hinges and a find several weeks back from the second hand store. I did photograph it in it's plain jane glory before messing with it. The checkboard was from the same trip & the seam binding is for scale.
It was a bit grungy and the pink velvet stained up from the glue they used. (who cuts an egg in half? totally cool idea)
Of course an application of gesso on the outside and some mists on the inside fixed everything....
I was really thrilled how it all turned out...
Looks a treat with a few other Easter things I pulled this weekend....
And what is that you spy in a tank? Meet Mad Eye Moody. More on him later this week!
