    Kitschy Bunnies! Artwork by 2 Artists!

    Filed under Art Projects, Collage Sheets, Easter Egg Shadowbox Kit, Giveaways, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, Sale, Shannon Cooper

    Eek! So much cuteness today! We’ve got artwork from 2 Design Team Members, plus some (new) cute retro bunnies and tiny creatures (and props) that could work for fairy garden or Easter projects.

    Starting with the new Kitschy Easter Collage Sheet: Ridiculously cute bunnies, chicks & lambs! A variety of sizes but most will fit in the Mini Shadowbox – 2×3 (the smallest box, that’s also in the Easter Egg Shadowbox Kit).

    On to today’s first project: Bunny Train for Spring. See the wide photo below… Oh my! This is so sweet! Love the whole look and feel of this kitschy train by Shannon Cooper!

    What do you do with two afternoons and the most adorable kitschy Easter collage sheet on the planet? You make a Bunny Train, that’s what you do!

    All of the cars have a “turf” base dotted with mini tulips, glittered pom pom wheels, and a scalloped awning made from a Mini Shadowbox Lid.

    Read more (and see more photos) in Shannon’s blog post. You can also see the full supply list. And don’t forget to scroll down in this newsletter for a close-up in the Giveaway!
     


     

    Next up: A whole menagerie of Easter shadowboxes, by Design Team Member Rhonda Secrist Thomas!

    I just picked out 2 in the photo below:
    - a gnome framed in the Easter Egg Mini Shadowbox Lid (covered with pretty green paper from the Cottontail 6×6 Paper Pad), and
    - a larger bunny box, filled with more bunnies (with a little basket inside, filled with tiny eggs).

    Here’s more info about each, written by Rhonda:

    This is my little gnome friend (left side of photo below), sitting inside of a vintage tin. How do you like his mushroom stool?

    The bunny on the box on the right (below) made me think CHOCOLATE and getting a delicious bunny every year. So I decided to make the outside of the box look like chocolate using paint and brown embossing powder.
