Mixed media Easter eggs

Hello friends!
This is something I made for the 3D challenge at Lulupu. I wanted to give a try to mixed media eggs.
 Have a look.

This project of mine has been made completely from waste. I used some carefully broken egg shells as my moulds here and used some leftover plaster from home renovation to fill up the egg ,olds. This hardened the egg shells and prevented them from breaking.
I wrapped up some tissue from shirt packaging all around the eggs using some craft glue. Left it like this for around 2-3 days. I gave a lot of textures using plaster in thick consistency, some . Also did some stencilling using the plaster. Used some silicon beads from handbags, some gold glitter, buttons from old dresses, embroidery thread, glossy accents, crackle accents etc.
Used lindy's sprays and watercolours to paint the eggs . The fish scissors are hand drawn and the dragonfly and butterfly are fussy cut from pattern papers.
I  shaded the edges with charcoal pencil and finally gave a coat of mod podge.
Submitting this to the following challenge-
 I used buttons( as bubbles in water), embroidery thread( butterfly trail), hand-drawn scissors(behind the dragonfly to mimic its form). I recycled- egg shells as moulds,  old plaster, buttons from old dress, tissue from shirt packaging .
with Pattern Paper( script pattern paper- More visible in yellow one ),
Stamped image( stampers anonymous stamps) and
 Embellishments( buttons in blue egg ,lace and beads in pink one and glitter) 
Hope you like my attempt.
