DECORATE AN EGG! Smeared and Smudges Blog Hop

Good morning Friends,

This month the theme for the members blog hop by Smeared and Smudge is “Decorate an Egg! I just went to the Facebook sign up page and noticed that it said to decorate a real egg. I dont know how I missed that part. I did not decorate a real egg, I apologize for this and if you dont want to look I understand.

Here is the blog roll, these artists are a must see!

Here is my Egg:


I bought a bag of wood eggs from Micheal’s, then cover the egg with paper from a book. I made a mixture of water and Mod Podge and soaked my torn book pieces in it, then wrapped it all over the egg.

I stamped onto Tissue Paper and colored with Copics. Then I carefully put the tissue paper into the mixture then onto the egg. This is a stamp from Lost Coast Designs called “Art Doll.”

artdollThis is what the stamp looks like, I have linked it up to the store for you.


Using 2 different Unity Stamp co. stamps, one is a hand with the word ART, the other says all you need is Love. Stamped onto tissue paper then placed onto egg.


Unity Stamp co. sentiment stamp “Be Original Be you.” also stamped onto tissue paper.


The owl stamp is from Unity. I stamped onto tissue paper, colored with Copics.

I didn’t notice it until the photo, but I think it’s funny the word teeth is in his eyeball 🙂

So there ya have it! Thanks for stopping by, Thank you for your comments! Stay Crafty my Friends!

Next in the list is Ike, you really dont want to miss out on her egg!!
