Her Craft-Kre8tions Design Team ~ Thinking Outisde the Yoke

Welcome to Her Craft Kre8tions first ever Blog Hop which we are calling Thinking Outisde the Yoke. Each Design Team Member was given a paper mache egg and were to transform this into something other than what was given to them originally. Our Design Team is to think outside of the "card" and do something other than cards and layouts. What a challenge .... could you meet this challenge?

Check out our incredible creative Design Team . . . .

WOW - this was quite a project for me to accomplish.  I had so many thoughts that went through my head but then would axe the idea because I did not like it.  Even as I completed the final design, I was making changes left and right to what I was doing.

I started this project thinking I would just create a Faberge Egg, and bling it out.  Then as I thought about it, I decided I wanted to turn my tiny egg into a flower vase.  So, with a little bit of acrylic paint, I have taken a paper mache egg, used my hubby's dremel tool to trim off the top of it, and created myself an eggcellent flower vase.

Here is what I started with:

Here is the egg vase

Here are the results of my egg project

I am still trying to decide if I want to bling out the egg with pearls and diamonds.  Parts of me say yes, you should do it, while another part says no, it is hidden by the vines.  So, for now, it is a vibrant pearlized purple with no bling.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, please be sure to visit my DT sisters and see their eggcellent projects.
