HOPPY Monday! (We just couldn’t resist that pun!) We are JUMPING right in with a wonderful array of springtime, Eastery projects perfect for decorating your home this week! Let’s start with Humpty Dumpty, the beloved nursery rhyme character, brought to life by Riikka!
Humpty Dumpty Easter Eggs
“I made some pearly and light eggs for my Facebook live last week, so I wanted to make something completely different for this post. Instead of going with white pearl paint, I painted the plastic eggs first using black gesso and then started to add orange and pink hues on them. “ ~ Riikka
“The moon faces that I used as decorations in these made me think about Humpty Dumpty. Luckily these eggs are of strongly built so, even if they would happen to have a great fall, no harm would come to them. So no king’s men or horses needed!”
(Riikka’s decorations were created with hot glue and Finnabair’s new silicone moulds, then painted and waxed to achieve these gorgeous results.)

Miss Bunny Tea Cup
Hippity Hop! It’s time to see the BEAUTIFUL Easter Bunny Tanya created for us!
“In celebration of Easter I created this super cute Teacup featuring the beautiful Lavender Frost collection with the adorable little Bunny doll from the Julie Nutting line of GORGEOUS stamps. I cut the teacup and saucer from my Silhouette (design ID 47200) and assembled accordingly. I also a cut a round box and added some paper straws and a cute little banner on top and some ribbon. I place the round box in the teacup. The bunny has been coloured with Prima watercolur pencils and dressed in Lavender Frost. I adorned the rest of the teacup with some die-cut elements, flat back pearls, wool and gorgeous Prima flowers." - Tanya
