Easter - mixed media egg

Happy Easter - according to the orthodox calendar of 2019!

Fabrika Decoru has presented a great opportunity to take part in the "Easter marathon", and the final challenge was to create a scrapbooking project associated with "Easter egg".

Easter egg - papmaché and mixed media

Luckily, catholic Easter is earlier than orthodox, thus my kids have already enjoyed their treats :-) I was just waiting for my daughter to unpack one of the Easter eggs… so that I could have the shell :-)

I covered the plastic shell with toilet paper, just like papmaché technique, added some twine and other fabric and covered with Gesso. Once it was dry, I applied modelling paste though a couple of stencils. Then, I sprayed the whole rainbow on the egg. As the colours turned out to be brighter than I expected, I toned them down with a sponge, dipped in gesso.

One side I embellished with cute wooden hen (from Rema 1000), lace and a feather.

The other side is primarily embellished with DIY paper flowers (the same I used for the watering can) and chipboards from Fabrika Decoru. Lots of sequins are hidden behind the flowers.

Flowers, just like the egg itself, were kept in pastel colours.
