So, anyone who has ever seen my craft room, knows that it is crammed with all kinds of bits and pieces of, well, who knows what. The little basket below was a bright and brassy holder, that may have held a jam jar or candy dish once upon a time. When I found it, it had potential, but for what?
With Easter coming early this year and a sunny, warmish kind of day today, I started thinking bunnies and chicks.
... and after seeing this sweet spring picture at Graphics Fairy, I decided to recreate the scene in my basket. After a light wash of pale pink paint, a hand full of dyed sphagnum moss, and some scattered mercury glass beads for color, I cut out the bunny and chicks I had printed on card stock, and placed them in their not so new home... and voila a whimsical reinvented basket!!
