Dyeing Easter Eggs
I'm a terrible speller. Automatic spell check is a wonderful invention. Unfortunately, there isn't one for scrapbook pages so I have to use my old paperback dictionary. Good thing or I would have been 'dying' Easter eggs on this page rather than 'dyEing' eggs.
I didn't find this out until I was all set on these glitter foam Thickers, a type I so seldom have a page for. So I used an upside 'z' that went a few rounds with my scissors. It's a little large but it is an 'e.'
The photo was one Jaime took at Easter at her mother's house. Don't the kids look very intent on their task?
My little ovals are chipboard pieces left over from letters like the middle of 'o's an a's. I always throw these scraps in a drawer and use them for lots of things mostly as spacers. This time they made a row of embellishments. Originally they were for another page but just didn't seem to quite work - too cutesy for that subject. They must have been waiting for this page.
I used some rub-ons to dress up a couple of them.
I seldom buy holiday specific product. The only thing remotely specific to Easter I have are these stamps that were part of a large set. A few drops of mist seem to go with the theme. How could you dye eggs without spilling a drop or two of dye?
So here's the process video and sketch
