Glue Journal - Eggs

The shape of last week's avocado inspired me to duplicate that shape with the egg.  The nest image, one of my favorites, was in my paper pile, started the inspiration.  The piece at top is a scrap of beautiful printed vellum. I love taking all the leftover scraps and giving them a new home!
Linking to Artsyville's Glue It Tuesday.
I want to share a spread in my Glue/Smash Journal.  The background papers were already there, but they reminded me of summer patio lights.  I was saving this container-gardening magazine page (because I want a patio like that), so I tore it in half and glued it here.  Every time I look at it, I'm transported to a summer night with patio lights, warm breezes, and lots of green plants.

What a lovely collage you've created with the nest image. It's so satisfying to find a lovely way to use those scraps isn't it?
