Easter is just around the corner, and if you’;re looking for an Easter decoration that is a little less traditional, here’;s a perfect idea for you. The basic ingredients are? an egg, flowers, leaves/foliage and?the Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Kit ?‘;Weathered Copper’;.

‘;Wanting to combine the feeling of spring through flowers and a classical yet unexpected touch, the idea to give my egg a weathered copper do-over?sprouted in my brain. The concept of soft flowers that?have become?hardened material really spoke to mecanvas throw pillow covers,’; says Crew Member Mandy Leever-Koel.

Materials used:

Canvas Corp Tissuestock DamaskTattered Angels Naturally Aged Paint Kit ‘;Weathered Copper’;Tattered Angels High Impact Metallic Paint CopperTattered Angels Glimmer Glam ‘;Tail Fin’;Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist ‘;Blue Ribbon’;

Other materials:Egg vase –; TCW Gel Medium –; White Gesso –; Paper Flowers –; Paper leaves/foliage (Diecut machine and dies) –;Metal Butterfly –; Sisal –; Feathers –; Skeleton Leaves

STEP 1

Find an egg.?This one used to be flower pot and was wasting away?in our barn. I’;m sure thrift stores must have some of them, or the home decor stores, garden centres.

STEP 2

Decorate your egg using shredded Canvas Corp Damask Tissuestock. Adhere with TCW gel medium.?Don’;t worry about crinkles, they will only add to the weathered effect!

STEP 3

Paint with white gesso to soften the damask pattern. In retrospective, you won’;t need much gesso, or the pattern will disappear.

STEP 4

Build a composition using paper flowers, paper leaves and foliage. The flowers can come from your stash, as well as the leaves. For the foliage, I used my Die-cut machine and a Sizzix die.

STEP 5

Let me be honest with you and share my mistakes. I painted my composition with white gesso and then pulled out my Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Paint Kit, only to discover the white gesso somehow repelled the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ‘;Bronze’;. (I could have known, gesso keeps paint mediums from being absorbed too much!)

So instead, I painted all the flowers and leaves with Tattered Angels High Impact Metallic Paint ‘;Copper’;.

STEP 6

Now was the time to use my Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Paint kit ‘;Weathered Copper’;.?Follow the instructions and you will get a wonderful, realistic looking weathered copper effect!

STEP 7

Paint a white butterfly with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam ‘;Tail Fin’;, stroke some Tattered Angels High Impact Metallic Paint ‘;Copper’; onto the surface and splatter a little Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist ‘;Blue Ribbon’;, carefully washed away a bit. Attach the butterfly to the composition.

STEP 8

Find something to fill your egg with. In this case sisal, feathers and skeleton leaves did the trick. They make the egg look less ‘;classical’; somehow. A bit more whimsical.
