I was really inspired by these paper mache eggs from Alpha Stamps. The first one I made is a bit quirky, but fun nonetheless. This winged egg has lots of Tim Holtz hardware and a few filigree to make for a slightly steampunk look. I originally cut a hole in the front to try to do something inside of the egg, but it did not work, so the window was added instead.
The second project that I finished is a hinged egg with a few surprises inside.
The outside is simply colored with distress stain in silver. I cannot rave enough about those stains. Simple decorations were added by way of stickers and tinsel.
Inside the egg there are two little spring nests. I absolutely love the tiny bunnies, which are actually brads.
Opposite is a more traditional spring nest with a brass bird and tiny eggs.
Perhaps posting of spring and Easter-ey things will help it to arrive a bit sooner in Michigan, boy am I ready!
