My ATC Tray



I've been dying to show you this, I've been waiting for it to be posted on the Papermaze blog. My ATC tray.

I bought this 7 Gypsies Letterblock Printer Tray last year.
I had so many ideas when it arrived. I covered it in one of my favourite paper collections, Crate, Restoration. It really is a favourite of mine, but then I just felt stumped. It just didn't feel right and wasn't right for my hallway where I wanted it to hang. So sadly, it's been sat on a shelf unfinished and waiting for the inspiration to hit.

So when my Papermaze delivery arrived, now 4 months since starting the tray, I knew instantly that I had found the right collection for me and my tray.
My Minds Eye - Stella and Rose, I thank you.



After all this time, in one evening, this was made.
The mixture of blues, greens and yellows in this collection are just beautiful. I love them.
The papers have been cut to size, inked up and stuck down in place. I did leave a tiny amount of the Crate Restoration in (you may have already clocked it), the colours were a good match for this project.





I've used a few of the heart topped pins on this tray. I love using these on my projects. Here you can see that I've added 3 white buttons. I've stuck 3 blue buttons on top which have had embroidery thread added to them. Once stuck in place I've threaded a pin through. This was abit fiddley, but it's a nice touch.





Thanks for stopping by : )
