Welcome To The 13th 
Masterpiece Monday

                                                    My masterpiece this week are some tissue paper Easter eggs!
Weird but true fact: I've held on to a certain napkin for years, because I liked the seashell pattern printed on it.  I wanted to figure out a way to use it for something.
 The years went by, and every time I ran across it, I felt like a pack rat for keeping it and wondered why I couldn't just throw things away like a normal person!
 Then recently, I had one of those glorious light-bulb-over-the-head moments. I decided to use it to make ocean inspired Easter eggs.


 I used the eggs that I had already painted last year. All I had to do was cut out the shapes and Modpodge them on.  When they were dry, I coated the outside with Modpodge too.
This could not have been any easier and it was free by using stuff I already had.
 I love the seahorses and I'm glad now that I save certain things that I like.

I think I see some more paper napkin crafting in my future!

I love your eggs. That is why my house looks like it does because I save everything too!!! You never know when an idea might pop up and you regret that you did not save the very thing you need. ~~Sherry~~

Hi. I love your Easter eggs with the napkin images! I tried to link, but it is not working and I cannot figure how to delete the link - 47 and 49, the second try. Can you help? My first time trying to link.

Your easter eggs are amazing and I've been looking EVERYWHERE for someone that had beach-inspired easter decor - found it and must feature on our blog later this week! FABULOUS job!
