Paper Painted Flowers:
Tim Holtz Flower Die Cuts, painted with turquoise & metallic gold paints, and a jewel in the middle. A mix of the brown paper, the paints, and a crumbling effect while drying, really gave a vintage oxidized patina effect! I used to do add water to my pennies to create that color. I LOVE IT!!
Earth Day Egg Box:
I used an egg shape box and painted it with some Ranger Color Wash in "Stream" and some Mister Huey's Color Mist in "Clove" for this planet earth look. I then cut some words from the "Caribbean Life" newspaper and Mod Podged it to the box. This is a perfect gift box to celebrate Earth Day, you can fill it with seeds or possibly a letter to a loved one.
Also, the egg shape reminds me so much of when I was in elementary school. The teacher gave us some thoughts about the egg being used around Easter, as a context to remind us that like an egg that breaks, and a chick is born, it's a celebration of New Life... I'm thankful for that lesson!
Enjoy this weekend if it's in church, a temple, a garden, and with family...
