Gold and Pastel Eggs


I don't know about you, but I am loving that Spring is here (well at least it's here in California).  I'm having so much fun pinning Spring and Easter ideas on Pinterest.  I'm totally inspired by these gorgeous ombre eggs and these beautiful gold dipped ones.  So, I decided to make my own version.

 

I love to use paper mache eggs for Easter (like my chalkboard ones).  It's fun to be able to take them out year after year and they are nearly indestructible, which is very important with an 18 mo. old in the house.


I took my color inspiration from this lovely modern art print, Stacks, from Minted.  This piece reminded me of beautiful painted Easter eggs, so I putting it with my framed Easter cards and white bunnies.   I painted them 3 shades of blue and 3 shades of green.  Then I simply painted one end of each egg metallic gold.  I tried taping them off with blue painter's tape to start with, but then I decided I wanted something a little more free form.  So, I just free hand painted them, making them all unique and one of a kind.  I'm happy with the results.


Don't forget to enter my giveaway from Minted, it ends tomorrow.  It's $150 to spend on whatever Minted products you want!  Enter here.
