A Lovely Family day, complete with Easter Eggs

I was looking at the plastic Easter Eggs we all seem to have stored away and I was struck by an Idea!
A simple plastic Easter Egg takes on a gorgeous new appearance with Dew Drops.

All you need is a sturdy glue.  For this application I used hot glue, but I also like E600 for a job like this.  The hot glue was decided on for the much faster drying time. A little dot of hot glue applied to the egg and start applying the drops.   I used a small stand to hold the egg, making it easier to get a bunch glued on at a time.

In this picture below you can see all the "spider webbing" from the hot glue stick.  I have a very easy fix for that in the next picture.  
Here you see my assistant Stephanie very carefully and quickly passing a heat gun or embossing gun over the area and it melts the webs away.  I stress the carefully and QUICKLY as the plastic egg beneath all the dew drops conducts the heat and it stays warm long after you remove the heat tool.  So, if not careful you will have a melty mess on your hands, literally.  So, slow and steady wins the race and the results are awesome. 
How perfectly pretty this will be on our Easter Brunch buffet. 
To wish you a Happy Spring, please save the following collage for your projects.


We send all good wishes for a peaceful Passover and Easter to everyone.
Thanks for joining me,
Jean

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
