It needed some attention and I like the color and structure of it. So I cleaned it up and decided to make a collage decor project with it. And I also got to use some of my scrap papers that I have( this was an added bonus!) So I started by taking pieces of paper and layering them collage-fashion inside this tray.
I kept layering until the entire inside was covered. Then I added some die-cut pieces, flowers and other embellishments to complete the project. This is the end result:
I also added pattern paper to the sides and top. Then I painted the very top and sides with white acrylic paint and distressed crackle paint. Inside the tray I made a border using a border punch. The project will be complete when I add my journaling and hang it on the wall.
