Happy Easter – Deb Stephens

Hello Fellow Dusty Fanatics and welcome to my first April DT project.

To start this project I traced around a clear acrylic egg shaped dome ,onto a piece of chipboard and then cut it out. I applied Texture paste through DA Stencil DA1487- Sunburst and then covered it all with black gesso when it dried. I then added some paint in blue and yellow and sprayed it with water and moved it around the base and dried it. Then I rubbed some of Tim Holtz’s new foundry wax and heat set. Gluing down some artificial moss and the painted Tree branch and egg from the Mini Nest and Bird Set (DA0982) came next.

Painting, arranging and adhering the Mini Royal Frame set small DA1527, Wordpl@y #16 – Easter DA3282 sentiment and the rest of the Mini Nest and Bird set came next.

Once this was layered up on the base, I added some loose gold mica flakes in various sizes for some sparkle before gluing down the egg dome to the base. Here are some close ups before the dome was glued down.

It was hard to get a good photo once the dome was on as it reflected light a lot. Wishing you all a safe and Happy Easter and I hope you enjoyed reading about this project.
