Inspiration with Trudi Harrison

'Dragon's Egg'

Hello Everyone,
Trudi back with you today sharing some more 2Crafty Chipboard inspiration.  First up, I have a medieval, steampunk inspired twist on the classic styrofoam egg.  I have been 'hatching' this idea for a while - for as long as I have been hanging onto this McDonald's dragon happy toy. 
It was a fiery red colour, but a coat of paint and some colour sprays changed it to coordinate.

Texture was added to the surface of the egg with a Moroccan Panel.  Pieces were
 trimmed and adhered in place. The egg was then painted with black gesso and
 colour added with sprays in layers to build up the intensity.

Chain Length was wrapped around the middle of the egg. 
Medium and Small Steampunk Gears were also used to embellish
the egg along with metal elements.

. A dragon's nest was made out of Fishing Net Bits.  
The look of these resonated chain mesh to me.

A stand was created from an empty ribbon spool with
 Barbed Wire wrapped around the middle.

I have included a video sharing the creative process of my dragon's egg:

I also have an 'Alice' inspired tag to share.  This one showcases the Fob Clock as the hero piece:

"Discover Life"

 The Retro Panel was trimmed down to add detail and texture to the background.

Fussy cut elements were then layered over the top with the Fob Clock taking centre stage with Alice.
The chipboard was coloured with colour sprays with black pigment ink rubbed in over the top with my fingers.
