It ain't no Fabergé egg

I love sparkle. And glitter. Iridescent paint. Rainbows. Stones with mica. Metallic thread. Shiny things. I must have magpies as distant cousins. I sometimes need to restrain myself when putting gems on my artwork. That's one reason I opt for very tiny gems; it helps keep me from going over the top.

I was doing this drawing a while back and decided to heck with it. Over the top we go! Gems galore, large and small. Glitter paint. Iridescent paint. Gotta get it out of my system from time to time. My tangle Gingham is at the bottom.

It's much more sparkly in real life, but still, it ain't no Fabergé egg so I call it "Fabergéain't".

  3. TRUTH....I was never that fond of Faberge eggs....a bit too over the top for me. I like the unexactness that Zentangle brings to this design... and in this case the sparkles are perfect!! and that you broke through the border for no reason but beauty. Shouldn't that always be the reason? And oh yeah, I love that it isn't in the middle. Makes for a really interesting piece. Love it. And Happy Easter to you, too. Maria
