March Angel Art Blog Hop!

Easter is the theme for this months Angel Art Blog Hop.  I have so many wonderful Easter memories from my childhood.  There was a really neat little candy store in our town that made chocolates and all kinds of really cool candies, at Easter they made these wonderful sugar eggs, all different colors and sizes. At one end, or in the middle there was a hole that you could look through, and inside the egg would be a miniature scene with bunnies or little yellow chicks all out of frosting and sugar. I always loved those eggs, and marveled at those tiny little works of art inside. So for my Easter project I created my own version of those candy eggs, but with paper and stamps!

I cut my 'egg' out of lavender card stock and then used a nestibilities circle to cut out the opening for my little Easter scene. I used "The Joy of Easter" from The Angel Company, masking several of the images to create the focal point. I had found these fun little 'windows' that are really for making shaker cards at our local stamp store, and thought it would work well for this project too! A little shading and some stickles and ta-da!

So what do you think, I think I might try a few more of these, maybe add some more flowers!

Please be sure to stop by the other blogs of those Angel's who are participating,and let them know how much you enjoy their projects too!
