Good Morning, welcome to Tutorial Tuesday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed Mother's Day - I shared mine with my firstborn's 6th Birthday, I couldn't ask for a better gift! I spent the day building lots of Lego and enjoying seeing what a lovely boy my first baby is growing into.
Today, still staying with 'Spring is in the Air' themed Tutorials - I will be sharing a lovely Easter Egg Door Stop, (or you can use it as a paper weight etc)...
You will need:
An Easter Egg Shaped Pebble,
Paint in Easter Egg Colours,
A Marker Pen,
Draw your desired pattern onto your pebble using a pencil...
Start painting each section with bright Easter coloured paints, I alternated painting each section to stop the colours mixing into one another. I also used narrow paintbrushes for finer detail...
...Leave these sections to dry.
Paint the other sections and leave to dry...
Flip the pebble over and paint the back...
...and leave to dry.
Give each section another coat of paint to get a nice even coverage then leave to dry...
Take a co-ordinating marker pen and draw over the lines of each section to give definition...
Voilà a fun, pretty Easter Egg Pebble Doorstop - perfect for holding open your back door to let in the Spring air!
You could even use it to brighten up a Garden rockerie, add fun to an Easter Egg Hunt Display or just use it as a seasonal paperweight.
Have fun and see what you could use it for!
Enjoy the rest of the day :)
