OK this weeks Smudgy Antics challenge"Alter an Egg" is not an easy one, and because of that, you can either alter an egg or use an eggshape or egg in your piece.
Altering an egg is nearly impossible to do, it won't stay put,it's almost impossible to stamp on an egg and If you use a plastic one like I did, DON'T USE YOUR HEATGUN on it because the egg will MELT
So I tried and tried and finally came up with something acceptable.
gonna show you my melted bumpy egg first
I gessoed it and painted it orange, drew a spiderwebb on it and glued some Smeared Ink Bat digi's on it. I used the heat gun to dry the paint and the egg got all kinds of bumps so not goood.......
I don't give up that easy and her is egg 2
again not the result I hoped for, what I did was drew a hole and cracks on the egg using a permanent marker, then cut the eyes of a Grumpie digi and glued it in the hole. It is supposed to look like the Grumpie is hatching from the egg.
And tadaaaa the 3rd egg, again not the most brilliant piece I've ever made
I glued little pieces of designer paper to the egg, to give it an old, distressed look. Then cut the lady out of the Smitten digi
coloured her and glued her on the egg (sounds a lot easier then it was. Then I put crackle medium over the egg and added some distress. The finishing touch are the silk roses.
Here a pikkie of my 3 eggs together
