Prime the journal page with gesso. When dry, color with your favorite shade of Gelatos® Pastels colors.

Diecut basket and eggs from cardstock. Prime the diecuts with gesso and color the eggs with PASTELS Gelatos® colors and blend with Glaze medium.

Attach some bits of lace and the diecuts to the page using gel medium.

Add details to the eggs using Stamper's Big Brush pens.

Color the basket with Gesso and Art GRIP® Aquarelle watercolor pencils.

Cut a word you like from an old book page and attach to the egg to finish.
