Hello my dear friends,
in my last post I shared a sneak peek of something I was working which was this ...
... a large tin egg half.
It is now finally done and that means it's time to turn it around ...
... so you can see what I have done with it.
And here it is ... my newest creation!
I am so very please with the way it has turned out.
When I found this egg a few months ago, I knew I wanted to turn it into something special and my dandelion blowy flowers turned out to be perfect for it.
The word on the tag reads "Lowenzahn" which is the German word for "dandelion".
The font I used, is something I am teaching myself these days but more of that in another post.
The inside and outside of the egg have been covered with pieces from vintage doilies and then coated with white Gesso to give it an old plaster design look and I think it actually works.
Again sari silk was so perfect for the leaves, I just love the look of them so much.
With this half now done, I have already started to work on the other one.
The covering with vintage doily pieces, Gesso and attaching the metal candle holder as the stand has already been done and now I am turning my attention to the important part ... what to put inside it? I have so far had three ideas and I am currently trying to design each one of them to see which one would be the right choice in the end. I even wonder which one I will pick. So whenever you have a few spare moments and fell like taking a break, grab that cup of coffee or tea and pop by, I might just have something new to share!
So ... what have you been up to staying home these days? Do tell!
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Stay home and stay healthy.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
