Altered Easter Eggs

I have a penchant for altering anything that stands still long enough! I've had these papier mache eggs in my storage cabinet, and I decided to alter a few of them to send to some of my stamping friends for Easter.

A couple of years ago, I altered some of these with less than stellar results. This time, I wanted to try something slightly different, and I was much happier with my results!

I began by tearing up tissue paper and gluing pieces onto the egg with my Royal Decoupage finish. Afterwards, I allowed the eggs to dry over night.

Once dried, I took a gold ink pad and sponge it all over all the eggs. Once again, I allowed the eggs to dry for a while. Finally, I added different embellishments to each egg, such as beads, glitter, microbeads, and flowers.

These are gorgeous girl, love them, I got my box, but have not yet opened it, am feeling much better - the 10mg tablet knocked me out - I went to bed at 10pm and woke up today at 1.45 - so I may have to take only half the tablet... Chris said he tried to wake me up so many times this morning and I just lay there silent... LOL feel the pain is still there, but am feeling better emotionally! Take care talk to you soon!
