Gift Idea: Artists Tray with Rhonda
Greetings and welcome to Sunday Funday on the blog! I have a project featuring the Down By The Sea collection and the Pentart Cracking Paint System. We recently took a vacation to Florida and spent a bit of time at the ocean. This collection was perfect for my photos!
I found this artist tray at my local craft store on clearance and thought it would be perfect to showcase this collection and my photos. This is also such a perfect gift for Mother's Day or Father's Day. I prepared the tray by painting my Cracking Paint System 1, let dry and then applied the Cracking Paint System 2 in White on top and set aside to dry and crack.
While the tray was drying, I measured the compartments and started trimming a variety of the papers, then I selected the photos that I wanted to print. I started with a 4x6 that I could cut in half for the focal center of the tray, then I printed smaller 2x3 photos to use in the opposite corners.
I cut several pretty die cut elements out from our new dies, used them in a few of the compartments. I also used bits from the fabulous Noteworthy package and of course, embellished with some Chipboard, Layered Chipboard and Double Dot Jewels.
I love how the Pentart Cracking Paint is so versatile and it took the color of the Glimmer Spray so nicely, I could control the depth of color easily.
