Eggciting Home Decor

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by today.  I'm sharing a project that I created for Petaloo with amazing papers shared with us by Authentique!!  I love to alter things and when I came across this paper mache flat egg I knew I had to have it for this project!!
I took pieces of the pattern paper from the Authentique collection Treasure.  Some of the pieces i cut smaller then others and even tried to do a curved piece along with cutting with the chevron papers for another.  I then inked the edges and cut the excess off to form the shape of the egg.  Once the paper was on it was time to decorate with the beautiful Petaloo products.
Here is how the final project turned out....notice the little burlap butterflies at the top of the egg!!

Of course we need a few close up photos to see the detail of the flowers!! The burlap collection of flowers is simply perfect with this paper collection and for this project!! I used Burlap Blossoms (pink,ivory and pistachio).  I started with placing the bigger flowers down first then added the smaller ones around them along with placing the Spring Berry Clusters (pink and white) throughout and around the flowers.

You can see that I added a couple of the diecut sayings to the egg and placed all of the flowers around them.  I did pop them up with foam dots so they did not lay flat by the flowers.

Hello Spring

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by today.  I'm sharing a card with you that I created for the Petaloo blog.  Spring is just around the corner (or so I hope)....I think we have all had enough Winter this time around.  In thinking "Spring" I created a fun card to share with someone in hopes of making their day a little brighter!!
I love the colors in this Graphic45 Time To Flourish collection and well we all know just how amazingly well the Petaloo products match them right!!  So here is the card I created.

The Burlap Blossoms and butterflies are simply my favorites...ok well i'm very fond of the Berry Clusters also....ok who am I kidding i'm fond of all the Petaloo goodies!!!
So can see in the close up below how cute those butterflies are!!  I finished off the card by adding a little seam binding around the top of the card.
