I wanted to show you more detailed photo's of my Easter Basket, that was recently published in Create and Decorate Magazine!
The wooden basket was perfect for this project, so I dressed it up to make the perfect Easter Basket. Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime patterned paper helped create the perfect vintage theme.
The edges of the tag were distressed, then the entire tag was misted with Tattered Angels Copper Glimmer Mist for an aged look.
The Labels Twenty-Two die template was placed over the patterned paper and aligned around the Bunny Image. I cut/ebmossed Labels Twenty-Two and also created a mat behind the Bunnies using the next size larger die template. The edges of each Label were inked for an added vintage feel.
Wood is one of my favorite mediums to use mist on. I chose Tattered Angels Copper Glimmer Mist to mist my Easter Basket. I misted several layers, and allowed each layer to dry before applying the next layer. The beauty of misting on wood, is that the glimmer mist almost floats on top of the wood and creates an amazing look.
Plastic Easter eggs were used as the base for my collaged eggs. I tore old book pages then dipped them in mod podge and layered them onto the eggs. Air bubbles were smoothed out, and the eggs were allowed to dry on a non-stick craft sheet. When they were dry I misted with Tattered Angels Copper Glimmer Mist. They turned out so lovely. They were so much fun to make! My girls even joined in the fun.
I hope you have enjoyed taking a closer look at my Easter Basket. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!
ps- the winner of the Wings of Hope die templates and t-shirts was Toni from Oregon!!! Thanks to all of you who played along. I'll have more blog candy in the near future.
I wish you all a very Happy Easter!
