Anything Spring Challenge#2 with Scrapbookaholic by Abby
Wow, it is hard to believe that it has been 2 weeks since I participated in my first challenge as a DT for Scrapbookaholic by Abby. Challenge #2 is all about spring and we were ask to come up with something, anything related to spring. To participate in Challenge #2 all you have to do is make something, anything related to spring, go over to Scrapbookaholic by Abby's and link your project in. Here is my project: A Giant Easter Egg!!! I got a 12x12 piece of card board and cut it into an oval. It is really easy to do but if you are unsure get a piece of scrap paper and draw an oval before you cut it out. I covered my egg with different colors and patterns of decorative paper to make it look like a colored Easter egg. I added a rabbit to it that I drew but I know not all can draw so go to your search engine and type in free rabbit pattern, you will be surprised how many different rabbits you will come up with, you may even find one that you like better than mine. LOL I inked my edges with green and brown inks to give the pieces a bit of a distress look. I also used chalk to make his cheeks and ears rosy. My line work is done with a black Zig Marker. My flowers are done with the Fiskars Daisy Flower punch. I punched the flowers out in 3 different colors and layered them together and held them in place with a small yellow brad. The stems and hanger are wire but you can use ribbon and twine to achieve a similar look. Again, if you would like to participate in the Scrapbookaholic by Abby go to her blog and follow these rules.
