am back with another quick, easy, non-messy project for Calico Crafts.
decorating the mothers day specimen tray a few days ago so decided to
strip it back and try another look on it.
This is a bit closer to my usual look; distressed and manky. I sanded all the pink stuff off and painted my Specimen tray with a brown wash. Then I used some of the 7 gypsies camden papers
which I managed to nab in the 7 gypsies sale now on on the web site (be
quick as its only while stocks last)... I covered the tray in the same
way as usual; glued the paper into place, let it dry and then sanded it
back to make it look work. after that it was pretty much a case of
glueing papers and ephemera into place. I like to ink all the edges of
the tray, papers and ephemera with my gingerbread chalk inkbefore gluing them in place.
Once all my bits of kaisercraft ephemera
were inked to look shabby and aged i added them to the compartments
using dimensional tape to give it a more 3D look. there is a 7gypsies
ruler along the top (also from the sale so there may be none left).
there is also a mini peg included and some sticker words.
