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!
