Easter Eggs Layout

Hello scrappy friends!  Today I am sharing an Easter layout for Susan K. Weckesser using some of her fabulous papers from the Live In Color Collection as well as Susan's stencil.

 For this layout I started with a piece of white card stock and used a toilet paper roll and sprayed through the roll with Heidi Swapp's Colorshine Mists in Peach, Blush and Seafoam and then went ahead and cut some eggs with my Silhouette Cameo.  I also made a basket with strips of paper from Susan's Live In Color Collection and used my envelope punch board to create the bow.

 I then went ahead and assembled the basket of eggs and used some foam dimensional squares to pop up the eggs and then outlined the eggs and basket with a black archival ink pen.  I had a pleated velvet ribbon in my stash that I thought would be perfect for the basket handle.  I added some sheer ribbon on the handle and tied a bow.

For the title I used some Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Spun Sugar and painted two stipes and then added my chipboard title.

For the grass, I used Susan K. Weckesser's stencil and dabbed it with the Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Mowed Lawn.  I then painted some flowers and "stencilled" them with an extra egg die cut that I had previously cut with my Cameo in white card stock.  One of the flowers I "stamped" with the already stencilled die cut.  Finally I went around with edge of my layout with a large rubber dot stamp dabbing it with a yellow paint dabber, then a green one, a pink one and a blue one.

I hope you enjoyed my Easter Eggs layout.  Have a wonderful, creative day!
