An 'Eggstraordinary' Nest.

It's funny where a Challenge will take you.
Today's card for Just Us Girls did just that.
It's our Word Week and Elizabeth chose EGG.
After all Easter is just around the corner!
As it is a New Month it is with great joy that
we Welcome our Very Talented Guest Mac Mable.
We are all in for a month of Treats!

As you see this isn't the normal Easter type card
and sometimes a photo doesn't do it justice!
Here's  a close up below of the nested eggs.

I only have one little stamp with eggs and
after umteen attempts nothing worked out.
Pinterest to the rescue and by chance I found
a few ideas for a Mixed Media Make.
I used bark, leaves and various items
picked up from time to time.
Attached some cut up straw onto some hessian
for the nest and punched out the eggs.
Where there are eggs there are feathers!
Raided the chicken pen again lol
To give some sort of depth to the eggs
I added crackle glaze and wax.
On to adhering art stones, liquid pearls and splatters.
Waxed in various places for added colour.
Attached to bright card base to finish.
Head over and check out the
'eggstraordinary' cards our Talented Guest Mac Mable
and the Team wowed you with and
add yours to our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in for a visit.

LIVE your Art!

It's that time of the month for our 
New Anything Goes Challenge at

I hadn't planned on a hanging piece to begin with
but in the end I decided to go the extra distance.
You will see lots more makes using
Tim's Wildflowers as I have so many ways
I want to use them.
Background is covered by blending
Tim's oxide inks adding stencilling and
texture with grit paste.
Flowers were cut and coloured with the same colours
as the background.

Sentiment is from AALL&Create.

This is when I decided to go further
with packing paper and cardboard backing.

Added a mixture of products to the cardboard
and adhered all together to complete.
Check out what's in store for you over at
We would love to see your Mixed Media Make there.
You just have to use multiple mediums
on our Anything Goes Challenge.
