Hello! I've been having fun making these table decorations using Tim Holtz Wildflowers Stems Thinlits sets 1 and 2 and his Springtime Side-Order set. I started with some different pots I altered, but they seemed too dark for Easter decorations. Perhaps they'll make an appearance in the future.
I found these three cute pots in my potting shed, and I thought they would look perfect for Easter if I shabbied them up. I made them over with Ground Espresso Distress Paint and (sadly) discontinued Crackle Paint. After layering these two products on and allowing them to dry, I smeared and smudged with Distress Crayons in Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain to highlight the cracks.
I love how some of the crackle paint chipped away in places for a real shabby look. All of my springtime cuties were cut from scraps.
The green/blue grass and flowers were cut from a background panel colored with Distress Oxide Sprays. All of the purple/lavender stems were water colored with Distress Markers and inks.
You can get an idea of how tiny these are when they are held in my hand. Excuse the nasty hands...I've been doing a lot of gardening in my real garden, too.
I hope you enjoyed my little paper Easter parade as much as I enjoyed making it! I made these especially for the Miniature/Tiny Things Challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge with my crayon smudged pots with the Tim Holtz Addicts Facebook March Challenge in mind. I hope you enjoy your Sunday! Hugs and Blessings! Sara Emily
