The creation that I would like to share with you - well it's a pair of decorated eggs!

But first I would just like to reminisce about living in Abu Dhabi! 
We regularly had Easter celebrations there within the expat community. A couple of years ago this was my creation for the Easter bonnet parade - using papier mache eggs decorated by my American friend Kathy, who I met in Abu Dhabi. 
(Look at her blog to see the stunning eggs she has decorated this year!)

Then last year I made this hat with these eggs - These were blown eggs that I painted with Distress Crackle Paint coloured with Distress Ink and adorned with ribbons...

At the party last year I also helped organise an egg decorating competition - great fun, using boiled eggs and sundry provided felt tips and embellishments!

I am sure, however you would like to see what I have made for this blog hop!!

These are blown eggs that I have decorated with Get Inky! digis. These I printed small, cut out and attached to the eggs.

Digi: Chick in Egg - printed 5 times. Chick's egg given extra texture with Texture Medium. Image coloured with Promarkers. Remaining egg coloured with acrylic paint dabbers. Whole egg painted with Crystal effects. Added flower embellishments. Ribbon and beads to hang.
Digi: Side Profile bunny - printed small and attached to egg then given extra texture with Texture Medium. Image coloured with Caramel Promarker. Remaining egg coloured with acrylic paint dabbers. Whole egg painted with Crystal effects. Added flower embellishments. Ribbon to hang.
