Penelope Altered Wooden Printer's Tray Project - with Irit

Hello My Dear Crafty Friends!
It's Irit here and today I am going to share my altered wooden printers tray that I made with BoBunny new and most gorgeous Penelope collection.

 Dream- A wooden altered tray by Irit Shalom

This 12*12'' wooden tray was already embellished once and was dirty white.
I decided to make the new tray as my small tribute to our family trips to some not so known countries The first step was to paint it to dark brown with the touch of gold.
I used Pentart Primer for Dekor paint as the first layer and then painted with brown Dekor paint and added some top touches of Creamy Acrylic Baroque Gold and now the tray was ready to be embellished.
The printers tray is a kind of Project Life type "blank canvas". So I decided to make " a page" from our trip to Albania.
I am just going to show our own photos and a bit of the country around.
The colors of Penelope collection where just the perfect fit to my photos that were mainly natural, blue and green.
Each cardstock piece was cut to fit the tray slot and then embellished with die cuts, hand cuts, wooden shapes, flowers and rhinestones.
Here are some close- ups to the slots:

As you can see  I also embellished over the tray to add more interest and more texture to the simple designs of the slots.

 All wooden and chipboard shapes were painted with the same Baroque Gold Acrylic paint.

Small die cuts were added as  the extra over the tray embellishments.

 Here you can see the depth of the tray and the imperfect painting inside the tray that was made on purpose to imitate the old wood.

 BoBunny flowers and die cuts made the most beautiful edge spot on the whole tray.
