Easter Parade


I created this assemblage by using a square of styrofoam, covered in moss, wrapped with a strip of paper and a picket fence made with a Martha Stewart border punch. The awesome musical bunnies are from a collage sheet available from Inkastamps. (She is having a 30% discount for the month of March-see post below for details!) The Easter sign are rub ons and the base is recycled from a tic-tac-toe game. The giant egg is paper mache' wrapped in dress maker's tissue, painted and splattered to look like a real egg. It is the size of an ostrich egg, a fun size to work with!

Ladies-Thank you all for your kind words! The really cool thing about this assemblage is, that it can easily be taken apart and stored away. Everything is held in place with straight pins! :-D
