The Intriguing Egg

You're probably thinking, "what in the world is this post about?"  Haha!  Well, it's the subject of my layout today :)  This little egg had my little one mesmerized.  My mother-in-law is an elementary school music teacher, and she uses these shaker eggs as an instrument.  They make a cool noise when you shake them, and she brought one for Paige to play with.  She was obsessed with playing with it and rolling it around all over the coffee table.

I used the Here & Now collection from Echo Park for this one.  I used sketch #53 from My Scraps and More.  I am a big fan of bold and bright, and this line is perfect for that!  I added some watercolor and gesso to the background, as well as various matching washi tapes.

I threw in a few buttons here and there, too.  They always add the perfect little touches.

A close-up of the watercolors and layers.  Very easy to do!

I love the dimension that layering and pop dots give!

Another angle of the watercolor work...

Watercolors are a great way to add some color and interest to your backgrounds.  If you need to add a pop of color and don't want to add more paper or another embellishment, add a blob of watercolor.  It's really fun and easy!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!


  1. I love the bright colors on this layout makes me think of Easter Eggs! :) And the diagonal striped background is really fun! I really love the strips of Washi Tape you added along the edges of the page!

  2. Love the watercolours and the torn layers! Your title is very cute too! I agree with Ashley about the washi strips! Love em!
