Good morning friends! I hope you are all doing well!
I had a fairly quiet weekend. Friday night we celebrated Cortney's birthday along with her Papa and her Great Grandma. (Who turned 94) Saturday we had a photo shoot for a clothing boutique, which I will share with you soon. Then on Sunday we relaxed because Cort came down with a cold and was not a happy camper at all.
Today is the first Monday of May and you know what that means?
Yep! Crafty Secret's Design Team Challenge and Linky Party!
I have a tutorial today to show you how I created this little altered tray.
The tray was recycled from embellishments that I had purchased. Off hand I can't remember who they were by. The pretty flower is part of the Easter Blessings digital image from Crafty Secrets. I colored the flower with Copic markers and the Wink of Stella pen for a bit of sparkle.
So here is the scoop on how I created this little tray. First, color your image.
Next, get a square punch, I used a 1 x 1 punch.
For this little tray the 1 x 1 worked perfectly.
I made sure when punching that I lined the image up perfectly. I wanted the flower to "connect."
I painted the tray white. I didn't worry too much about the inside because it was going to be hidden anyway.
I inked the edges of the squares.
I added glossy accents to the tray dividers and sprinkled glitter on top of it. I just love when a project has a little bit of sparkle!
To give that faux tile look, I added glossy accents to each tile and let them dry.
I didn't want the tiles to be entirely enclosed in each square so I bumped them up a bit with dimensional foam squares.
Once the tiles were dry, I placed them in each square compartment.
I added a little ribbon and posy combination at the bottom. I need to find a tiny easel to display this in my kitchen. ;)
