I found a paper mache' box in my craft supply and decided it was time to do something with it.
I covered the lid with lavender paper and the bottom with darker lavender, then, decoupaged some flowers that I cut out from printing paper that I had, then, I poked holes in it and threaded it with purple ribbon. Perfect for Easter ~
I printed out some images of several Beatrix Potter characters
- aside from Peter Rabbit, of course - were Benjamin Bunny, Squirrel Nutkin, Jemima Puddle-Duck, and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle. Including, Jeremy Fisher, Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers, Ginger and Pickles. Her "two bad mice" were called Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca. And, of course, the mischievous Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. I cut them separately and glued them to some poster board, punched a hole on top and again, threaded each one with different pale ribbon. And now I have Easter ornaments for my Easter tree ~
and when I get around to it...I'll take some pics of the Easter/Spring tree, so stay tuned. BTW, I love Beatrix Potter so much that when Raquel was born, her nursery was decorated from ceiling to floor in Potter decor.....and I wasn't even trying to rhyme...lol
Oh Yeah..and I found these little birds at the dollar store..2 for 1 dollar. They were a drab gray so I first painted them purple, then applied some crackle stuff and painted over them with white so the purple could show through. I found some glitter in my craft storage and put them on the wings. They are now sitting on my front porch table...
right now I'm in the middle of stamping on fabric..I'm not sure about it yet...I'll let you all know......I get like this sometimes where I can't stop...like I got a craftin' itch, so I gotta go for it when the get'ins good..then I'll be a slug for a while...
