All in a Tray!

Have you seen those nice trays you can use to display photos, cover with art, or simply embellish for a hand made house decor?

I was crazy about them and so wanted to do something with it... So I decided to capture my trip to Napa in one of these trays... and here it is...


I included a photo within a photo from my balloon trip, which is very representative of Napa...

The large balloon is from another photo and I cut it and placed on top of this one with 3D squares for dimension.


I used this Tim Holtz' grungeboard shapes to add related icons of the trip... I painted them and placed in cardstock and chipboard circles for different layers...

I divided photos to show in two as the tray has divisions... I love the concept of the photo to be continued...



I also added elements from the trip that were significant... like this cork from one of the wineries we visited...

Instead of using the name of NAPA as the title, I used a photo of the valley sign to establish the place of the events...


I also used stickers which I placed on top of cardstock circles to add personality, and stamps in patterned papers.... just to kind of half make my own embellishments.


These letters are also from Tim Holtz. Just snap them and place them... they are self adhesive.


Photos or elements are at different levels from the surface... I thought this was so cool.



So I hope this is just the first one of other trays I can work. They come in many shapes and different sizes. Divisions can also be asymmetric (not as this one that all spaces are the same size and shape).

Leave me your comments and show me yours.
