Her Craft Kre8tions "Thinking Outside the Yoke" Design Team Project

Welcome to Her Craft Kre8tions first ever Blog Hop which we are calling Thinking Outisde the Yoke. Each Design Team Member was given a paper mache egg and were to transform this into something other than what was given to them originally. Our Design Team is to think outside of the "card" and do something other than cards and layouts. What a challenge .... could you meet this challenge?
Check out our EGG-credible creative Design Team . . . .

Let's start with thinking outside of the yoke of our eggs . . . .
For my project. I used my egg to create a skirt on a jewelry holder.  I cut the  egg in a petal like fashion and folded flip them out.  I secured 20 guage wire to the underneath to make them repositional.  I imagined these could hold bracelets and rings.  The metal holders and stand have been fashioned from coat hangers bonded together.  These have been inserted into the torso of a Barbie doll who lost a leg in a tragic Golden Retriever accident.  I removed the other appendages and head….I quickly got over the fact that my crafting trash can looked like a serial killer dumping ground, because my project was taking better shape than I could imagine.  The brown paper that was orignally around the egg was used to decopauge the “skin” on my manequin.  I decopauged fabric around the torso and “egg” skirt to create the dress.  I then added trim, both fabric and beaded, and decorative pearls as wire end caps.   I have to say, I am quite pleased with the outcome.  I hope you have enjoyed my project and see how you can transform the simplist of things into the most creative of projects.  Please visit our Design Team page and my DT sisters pages to see all their wonderful creations.!
