Easter Egg Banner

Here's my take on a festive banner --- with decorative easter eggs instead of pennants.  In keeping with the large event space, each egg needed to be fairly large --- in this case over 24" tall.

Using a combination of spray paint and acrylics, I painted the base colors for maximum impact and visibility.  I chose vibrant shades of pink, teal, aqua, violet, chartreuse and turquoise and embellished with intricate decorative motifs based on vintage fabric, wallpaper designs, and pottery decorations.  Last, I used puffy paint ---- yes, the ones that come in squeeze tubes --- and applied Faberge-style filigrees and other embellishments for added dimension and interest.

Here's a photo of an egg in progress....
