Spring workshops @ el&em

Spring workshops are in full swing at el&em studios!
We started out the season with a fun & festive old-fashioned egg decorating party!!
Our egg creations included;
 stamped and decoupaged, 
shabby chic- vintage ticking, muslin and burlap quilted eggs, 
lace doily eggs and even beautiful golden eggs! 

Studio all set up and ready for some creative Springtime bliss!!

The gang's all here!!

We even had a special birthday girl celebrating her day with family, friends and crafty fun.

We kicked up the creativity a notch with our Spring Curio Collage class.
A challenging project, but so worh the effort!!
The ladies really put their artistic muscles to work for this one! 

Lovely and customized per fun to see everyone's different take
on this Spring collage piece.

These were our basic starting pieces...
-1 Graphic 45 Staples Book Box
-1 large matchbox
1- Verissmo box

We cut and folded the upcycled pieces to create drawers 
and a curio cupboard for inside our book boxes..

We painted the edges and corners of our book box... 
...added beautiful Spring themed papers (we used Graphic 45's Botanical Tea collection)
then the fun stuff, we played and embellished! 
Adding eggs, moss, flowers, collaged ephemera layers, hardware and more!!

Looks like fun huh!!??
