ZENT'EGG'LES


How Do You
Zent'Egg'le?
(that's the term I came up with for tangled egg art)

Most of these eggs, my daughter scribbled on when she was younger, and I didn't have the heart to throw them away. So, I tangled over the scribbles.
   I just love Easter! The most important message, that Christ gave His life to free us from sin, is so powerful!!! No greater Love!!!!
   I do enjoy the meaning of the egg this time of year too, and what it represents. Life!!! So I like to think of it as that Eternal Life, that Jesus talks about. 
   The egg is such a beautiful creation, all in its own! To hold the fragileness of one in my hand is such a miraculous wonder. Oh,......... any way, I can go on and on about my passion with eggs. Here I will share a little nonsense info about eggs and chickens that you might want to know.
These are the eggs that we get from our 6 chickens. See the different colors?

Now look at the differences in color. Same 6 chickens and yet the eggs have changed a bit.

   We are so egg cited every day to see what we will find in the nests. On line they call they chickens that lay these kind of eggs, Easter Eggers. Funny, huh? Anyway, I thought I would share a few of the eggs that I have decorated from our Easter Eggers. (If I could, I would blow out every egg we get from them because I find them so beautiful!!!!!, But my family already thinks I'm crazy,......!)
These little beauties, are from my brother's chickens. That are pure white. They are smaller in size because they are the pullet eggs. (When a chicken first starts laying eggs, they are smaller and they are called pullet eggs.)

These are green eggs. It's hard to tell because of the green artwork on them. I should have taken a pic, with them next to a white egg. The chickens that lay these and the blue/green eggs are called Ameraucanas and Araucanas. The blue/greens are my favorite, but for some reason they have been eating them. They are like finding the golden ticket!!
   I used Zentangle patterns on all of these. These are blown out eggs, so they are just meant for decoration. These are the markers that I use.
These can be found at Michaels' stores. Use 40% coupon and get them really cheap.  Click to enlarge image.
   I hope and pray that you all may enjoy the beauty of this Easter Season and all it's meaning!!
Please, go to my post with my free 'Alleluia' coloring page download. Enjoy!


Happy Easter!!

"Christ is Risen,
Alleluia, Alleluia!!!"

  1. Like your eggs. I did not use real eggs, found some plastic ones at Wal-mart that worked on. They were a little labor intensive but still fun to do.
