Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #22 - Inspiration Photo

It's time for another challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog. This month our theme an inspiration photo. Just make a project based on anything that inspires you about our "Eggs" photo.

Our sponsor this month is Waffle Flower Crafts. They make really cool, versatile stamps and dies for paper crafting. Our guest designer is Tessa Wise from the Waffle Flower Crafts design team. Our lucky random winner will get a $25 gift certificate to Waffle Flower Crafts!!

For my project I used some wooden eggs that I've had for years now, gelli print papers, rub-on and spray shines.
These are my wooden eggs.
You'll see after this photo I found a smaller one also. 
These are the Gelli Print Papers I used.
I cut the papers into strips and used
DecoArt DecouPage to adhere them to the eggs.

I decided they needed a little something else so I finished them off with
some white butterfly rub-ons by Maya Road and they sprayed them with
Mint and Teal Heidi Swapp ColorShine Sprays.
Here are the final eggs. I really like how they turned out
and I love that I was able to use my Gelli Print Papers.


  1. What a clever way to use your gelli prints! I had to pop over to see what you did to cover these eggs. I love this idea.

  2. These look fabulous,would be a great activity with kids too!

  3. Fabulous eggs Donna, love how you used the strips of gelli printed paper, wonderful idea! Deb xo

  4. The Eggs look wonderful, and a great way to use up your scraps.

  5. Wow Donna! Those collaged eggs look incredible! A real work of art!

  6. What a fabulous idea - they look amazing!

  7. I love the idea of using cut strips of your gelliprints to collage Easter eggs. The rub-ons gave the eggs a nice focal point. Happy Easter to you and your family, my friend!

  8. Great way to use up those mono prints!
