more photo trays

last week, i shared the photo tray i made. i wanted to also share what Arlene and Nicole did with theirs.

i apologize for the photo quality. they were taken at midnight. the colours may not be true. but at least you can see the techniques!

Arlene's Photo Tray

this is what my sister in law made. the bottom tray will soon hold the photo of their third baby. there were a few changes she made to hers. her butterflies are Maya Road. we painted the solid bottom with a cream paint and rock candy clear crackle paint. the top were glimmer misted then microbeads glued on. it was too dark to get a decent photo, but they looked lovely.

Arlene's detail

her negative ribbon twisted so nicely. i was very jealous!

their felt flowers have lots of dimension. they were made the same as mine. a neat technique that gives some variety!

Nicole's First Photo Tray

Nicole made 2 trays. this is the first one she created. do you notice the added dimension on her "family ties" die cut? my new EKsuccess open scallop border punch fit nicely over the printed scallops!

Nicole's detail

the hinge is grungeboard misted with some glimmer mist. then painted with the rock candy crackle paint.  she added another pin of mini hearts to her larger heart. i also like the pearl she added to her little fabric flower.

Nicole's Second Photo Tray

Nicole's second tray. it was getting late by this time! i think i tired her out. ha!

on the bottom left tray she cut out her sons' initials and pinned them to the scallop. great idea!

the blank spots will have photos added later.

Lori {one of the owners at Urban}is working on a similar tray. her is painted white. she is using some of the new My Mind's Eye black and white papers {meadowlark}. one word. stunning. she also used a pewter mist on some of the papers.

Sheri, another staff at Urban, just taught a class using the BoBunny Mamarazzi line. very cool.

at the Urban Scrapbook all weekend crop two of the girls made some lovely trays too. i should get their permission to share the photos. i haven't seen them on any of the galleries yet. i loved all the little details on the smaller tray, and the use of a single photo cropped to fit the entire bottom row.

you know, there is so much talent in the customers of Urban. i love it when they share their projects. besides being surrounded by paper at work, it is so much fun to see more new ideas. i am so lucky!

if you have a gallery at 2Peas or another website....could you comment and leave me a link?! i'd love to add you to my bookmarked list. if you have not started to share your work...please do so! it is a little tough at first, but it is fun to have your work viewed by others that love this hobby. i know it has given many of my days a lift just to see that someone "viewed" or "liked" something i did. when there is a comment it really makes my day. i'm totally being serious. we forget how simple words of praise or acknowledgement can mean so much.
