Vintiques Art Challenge

May 11, 2009

Recently, teacher/designers for Vintiques, decided on a $20.00 Vintique Art Challenge. After seeing a bird's nest at Vintiques, I just knew I had to do something with the beautiful, simple piece of nature...
I took some plastic Easter eggs add painted them cream, then Modge Podged vintage dress patterns onto the egg to add texture. I then sponged on brown and gold paint. I topped it off with pearlized glaze. Then I added a few feathers to the nest to complete.
I then added some beautiful vintage lace, pearls and buttons.
