Easter Egg Diorama Scene

Hello!! I'm not quite ready to stop making Easter projects yet! (Although for the record, this was one I had started two weeks ago and was trying to finish it in time LOL.) Last year I found this vintage painted ceramic diorama egg at the thrift store and I knew I could do something fun with it:

The little house is made using the Sizzix Village Dies from Tim Holtz (in particular, the Bungalow Die is the main structure). This whole series has been retired and is on its way out of the marketplace so find them while you can if you want them!

Lot's of little details…

I found a great source for all sorts of vintage German and English Scrap graphics - Scraps-A-Plenty. Check them out, they have ebay and etsy stores. Tons of designs and themes!

Here are a few little in process photos:

Step 1 – I used spray mists to color coffee filters and then collaged torn pieces onto the inside to form the sky of my little scene. I also noted the handy holes in the bottom so I decided to add a strand of Tiny Lights since it would be easy to thread up through a hole.

Step 2 – I built up a floor made of foam core board platforms. I left a slot in the base where the house was going to go so I could bunch lights up inside the house.

Step 3 – To make my grass, I used green inks/mists on some baby wipes I let dry out. It makes a nice "fabric" to use.

Step 4 – I used flower dies from Eileen Hull and her Twist & Style Tool to make the stems.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a good weekend and have a chance to get crafty. Stay safe and healthy!
