Humpty Dumpty - we all know of him and his sad plight. Oh dear, Mr. Humpty...well, at least in the old English version where your King's horses and men couldn't put you back together again. Sigh. Mine, of course, has quickly learned to be cautious, exploring and settling in to his new home. From visiting bunnies, catching the afternoon sunlight in the kitchen window, to having his first hot cuppa, he's one spectacular egg!
The recent Creative Tuesday's theme is Easter Eggs, so Michael came up with this brilliant idea to hand paint eggs for the kids this year. It was perfect and we created something unique and personal for each of them. Between the two of us, we painted more than a dozen eggs both for the kids and for some of our close friends. In fact, it was quite enjoyable seeing the smiles on everyone's faces when peering into their individual Easter mugs. Especially my dear friend Gayla, when she discovered her very own (requested) hand-painted Humpty Dumpty. Priceless!
Below are a few more of the eggs which I completed. We worked on both white and brown hard boiled eggs, using watercolor paints, sharpies, and white gel pens. Such fun, let me tell you!
