The Groovy Egg



The Queen was feeling a little "1970's"...so she decided to get her groove on & decoupage another egg.  Now I have been seeing all types of decoupaged or "Modge Podged" eggs in blog-land...A week or so ago, I even made Easter eggs using torn pages from an old hymnal & dictionary, vintage lace & buttons (see previous post "Recycled Nest." But I wanted to to be somewhat of a hippie & "shake things up" from the typical Easter egg...
I found this groovy paper in a magazine advertising scrap booking supplies. Cut out the flowers.  Used gloss Modge Podge to adhere. Added lime ribbon, this great vintage clip-on earring, & gold leaves from a broken bracelet in my junk drawer.                      
 
I spray painted a peat pot "eye shadow blue"; placed silver ric-rac around the center; glued a big blue button on the back side & a small button & the other gold leaves on the front.  I then tied a bow using the same lime green ribbon with a blue fauxe rhinestone in the center. I filled the peat pot with light green moss & some shredded paper to "nest" the groovy egg in...

"Stayin' Alive"..."Play That Funky Music".Tiff is gettin' down & gettin' groovy! Come on everybody "Shake Your Booty!"

Just a reminder to enter the 100 Follower Giveaway Celebration at The Cranky Queen...Now 133 Followers. The drawing will be held on Sunday, April 10th by Mr. Cranky King! Keep Calm & Carry On!

    You're holding out on us, girlfriend! When did you make that? There Mel and I were tonight, struggling to try to make the torn paper ones look as good as yours (they didn't) and here you are still another step ahead of us! LOL

  7. Love the blog name, big fan of KCCO - I am a painter and I sell about a zillion of those signs in various forms from large scale to small. And I am the dresser number painter and I did it by hand. Mostly I hope I win your drawing and am a new follower. Love all the vintage pictures!

  11. Love the egg! Look back in the history of my blog to see my adventures with Modge Podge and paper mache. I was lucky enough to move in our house when the Porch Tour artist lived across the street. I took one of her classes and worked with her on the porch tour a couple of years before she moved! I would love to come up for "craft night" or you come down with Wanda...but leave out Nana!
