We have a beautiful mood board to provide the creative inspiration this month at Art Anthology, The deep rich tones of patina'd items with the wonderful textures of rust opens a plethora of ideas for creativity.
My design team project for Art Anthology is an egg crate that I found in the trash and decided to alter it for an Easter project. The thing that really captured me with this egg crate is all texture on the material the crate was made from.
I primed the surface first with gesso and then began to transform this item into a pretty spring piece.
Filled with textures the once egg crate became a Easter decor piece.
The cross was created from air dry clay and then altered with crackle paste then painted with Art Anthology's paints for the antique effect.
With the use of floral fillers and assorted flowers, the piece came together right in time for the Easter season.
