Vintage German Glass Egg..Paper Mache
After thirty many years since doing this wonderful art form, I think my Vintage Easter Glass Egg turned out rather well. On the back of the egg I used a great vintage violet flower print and an awesome dragonfly print (have to add that faery touch) which had the hues of purple in it's tiny wings. On the front of the egg I did in vintage type "A Joyous Easter" and put a few violet flowers on to follow the overall feel. Added some of my hand twisted silk ribbon and flowers and WAHLAH a Vintage Easter Egg.
In going through my art journal that I have been keeping for over....well, let's just say years...shall we...I found my notes on doing the blown eggs. If anyone is interested in knowing how to do that just comment and I will post the directions for you in another post. Don't want to bore anyone...LOL!!! I plan on trying my hand AGAIN at doing some of the blown eggs and then decorating them. The real eggs have such a delicate look to them.
As always, thank you for stopping by. I hope that you will come back often...I so LOVE my visitors and especially those that leave comments. hint hint I'm working on a pressie box for a very special friend so I need to get hopping and get it done so I can get it in the mail. What are you working on today? Would love to hear all about it!! Until next time....
