'Vintage' Papier Mache Book Page Eggs - Part Deux
Whilst up in the loft this weekend I discovered some more plastic Easter eggs so, once again, I got busy with the PVA glue and created these gorgeously shabby chic decoupage eggs!
I applied strips torn from an old book of quotations for the background layer and 'aged' the eggs with a quick wash of watered down poster paint before adding images cut from a pack of paper napkins.
If you feel inspired to create your own Easter objects d'art take a look at my Decoupage Egg Tutorial where you will find full step by step instructions and photos.
The serviettes I used for this project were 'Butterfly Mail' by Paper-Design.
I purchased mine on eBay and was lucky enough to be the only bidder and paid just 99p for the pack of twenty. I made fourteen eggs in total and only used three napkins as each one has four printed sides. Quite a few shops on the internet have them in stock at the moment, including Cuddlybuddly.com and Amazon, or you might just pick up a bargain at eBay. I also have some spares if you're desperate, just message me!
I then spotted these 'Butterfly Print Cloche and Bases' whilst I was shopping in Sainsburys and I'm hoping Mr Larkin and the children might treat me to one (or two) as a Mothering Sunday gift. They would look perfect displaying my eggs on Easter Sunday either adorning the piano or dinner table.
Hmm....do my eggs count as 'treasured possessions'?
