"You Make Life Sweeter" Altered Tray
Hello Crafty Friends!! Can you believe it's a new month?! This means it's time for new kits from Tres Jolie Kits! This first project that I created this month, I used the beautiful, vibrant, fun collection from Simple Stories Simply Vintage "Lemon Twist" which is the July 2022 Scrapbook Kit. I altered this wooden tray from the Dollar Tree store.
I began by painting the tray using the Finnabair Art Alchemy Impasto Heavy Body Acrylic Paint (Mint), once it air dried, I picked out paper from the 12x12 paper pad and I cut to size for the inside of the tray. Next I inked the edges using Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink then adhered it. I then added some white sequins trim around the edge of the tray.
Next picked out one of the chipboard frames from the Lemon Twist collection , I printed out photos of my beautiful grand babies, backed them onto mint colored card stock, which isn't too visible, then adhered them onto the frame. For the frame to fit, I had to cut the frame on the side of the black cloths pin. On the opposite side I added double sided foam tape and secured it onto the tray.
I then began adhering a variety of flowers from the scrapbook kit as well as some from previous kits and from my stash. I also added pieces of ephemera from the Lemon Twist Bits & Pieces pack.
I added some pearls and Finnabair Art Stones to the variety of flowers. I finished it by adding a black cloths pin onto the edge of the chipboard frame that I had in my stash & added a butterfly from Prima Marketing.
This tray was so fun to create and I do plan on adding something on the back so it can stand on my craft desk or I can even add a Scotch Command Removable Utility Hook to hang also. I hope this inspires you all to create something fun! I hope you will visit the Tres Jolie Blog for more projects from the rest of the Tres Jolie Designers! I will be back next week with something that I am super excited to share with you all!! Till then...... xoxo
