This year to celebrate Easter I decided to take part in blissfullART's Easter Tin Swap.
What I ended up with is one of the most major deviations from a plan I have ever done but I love how it ended up (despite numerous mistakes).
You can't tell in the photo's but the tin background is shimmery gold over a textured light pink.
My plan always called for a decorated egg on the inside. I carefully cut, sized and decorated the egg. It wasn't until after I glued it into the tin that I realized I had decorated the wrong half, the bigger half, so now the tin doesn't close :(
Just look at that detail! I love how this turned out. The mold is a silicone mold-ornaments and settings. The piece needed to be flexible to wrap around the tin so I used hot glue. Yep, you read that right, I put hot glue in the mold. Waited a few minutes, popped it out and spray painted it gold.
Inside I ended up making the non closure worse by adding the grass at the base of the bunnies feet. I guess at this point it didn't matter, it was never going to close and the grass is fun. Still frustrated me.
The egg is paper mache that I highlighted with cream adhesive pearls, dazzles gold swirls and flourishes stickers , and dazzles gold thin lines stickers.
I really hope that my swap partner likes what I have created for her. The one she made for me arrived a few days ago and I can't wait to share it with you it is a glitter tarts dream come true!
Thanks for stopping by!
