I saw this wire-work idea and was really keen to try it myself. I am fascinated with birds' nests eggs and so the wrapped wire conjured up a nest in my mind which had to have some lovely eggs perched on it!!
I hadn't got any wire in my stash of the gauge I would really have liked so I had to make do with this thinner one which worked fine which was very easy to work (and hence very easy to mis-shape!!).
I painted my background on watercolour paper using acrylic paints and then acrylic inks and spritzed water. I stitched my heart to the background with embroidery silk.
The eggs were tinted with alcohol ink onto which I glued the small wording printed from my computer.
The title was stamped with Lost Coast Designs alphabet in Staz-on Timber Brown and then distressed with Vintage Photo and Peacock Feathers.
I like this wire idea so there may be more to come ...
I'm entering this into the first challenge at the new site Country View Crafts blog - Challenge 1 - Pick 'n' Mix
Enjoy your week ... xx
