Beyond the Bunny Dome

Alpha Stamps is now carrying cute little plastic domes. They're actually meant to be snow globes, but I made something Easter-y out of mine: two little rabbit pals chatting it up, surrounded by spring flowers and little chickies. The rabbits were made by lopping off the heads of some vintage images of children and adding heads from some German scrap. A little vicious, perhaps, but occasionally one must suffer for art.
Isn't that little picket fence the cutest? Just about all the supplies to make this can be found at Alpha Stamps. I might need to stock up on those domes and make some circus- or Halloween-themed scenes.

Altered Easter Egg

What do you do when someone hands you a paper maché egg and asks you to make something out of it? I cut a little door into mine and then covered it and the egg with Russian text tinted with Copic Markers. I added few flower sequins, some tiny pearls, and a lovely golden crown to top it off.
The egg is resting in a little nest I've had for a while, and sitting on a painted and embellished candle cup.

What's inside?
I couldn't resist sticking some of those chenille chicks I remember from my childhood in there. Peep peep!

Most of the supplies I used, including the egg, the wooden stand, and the sequins and ribbons, can be found at Alpha Stamps.

Easter Parade and new Alpha Stamps swap

Spring is here! Alpha Stamps is holding an Easter Parade Accordion Book swap, using chipboard egg covers. Here's what I made as a sample. Front cover:

When you open it up, you see the parade. I cut animals out of a couple of different fun collage sheets to create the parade.

Back cover: 
Hop on over to Alpha Stamps to get the details of the swap! You have until March 31st to have your art in.
