3D Challenge with Mixed media Easter eggs!

Hi friends!
This is Jaya here with todays inspiration project  for the 3D challenge at Lulupu.
This time around we want to see your 3D projects. Grab anything in your sight and alter it or create something new that you wish to..a shadow box, decorative items as jars and wishing well, birdhouses.
You are only limited to your imagination!
1. Make 3D project for eg Mixed media altered art, bag, box, baskets, bird houses, shadow boxes, mailbox, Decorative Jars/bottles etc
2. Cards, layouts, albums will not qualify for the prize.
3. Use your imagination and surprise us.
4. You can make the entries till July 31st, 23.55
Today I have some mixed media decorative eggs for you as inspiration for the current challenge. Yes eggs!

Have a look!

I used some carefully broken egg shells as my moulds here. some leftover plaster from house renovation work. some old buttons, thread, tissue, lace, silicon beads etc.
I started with pouring my plaster mixture into the egg shell mould and let it dry for around 2 days. I did this to harden the shells. you have a choice to remove the shells or leave them as such once the plaster is dry.

Then comes up wrapping with tissue to give texture. Did some stencilling with texture paste as well. Used my favourite Lindy's sprays to give the colour. Applied some crackle paint glossy accents. Finally a liberal coat of mod podge.

Hope you liked the project and were inspired enough to think (a little) out of the box! We will love to see what projects you come up with. Give up inhibitions to try something new and unique and never stop yourself from outdoing 'you'!

Looking forward to your projects for the Current Challenge#35- Go 3D.
Till then.. Have fun creating!
