How to alter a mini tray


I picked up this little silver plated tray from a charity shop. Pretty as it is but I wanted to change it into a fridge magnet.

I primed the tray with Gesso and then once dry painted it with Metal Dimensional Medium in Bronze.

Add a piece of scrapbook paper as a background.

Stamp your desired image onto scrapbook paper.

Spray some Colorations Sprays onto a craft sheet. I used Waimea Bay, Grape Soda, Patience and Timeless.

Paint your stamped image. Let the colours blend together to create a watercolour effect.

Using some white trim, rub it through the excess spray on your craft sheet. This will dye the trim to co-ordinate with your stamped image.

Adhere your trim to the tray to cover the paper edging.

Add some glitter!

Add some flowers and embellishments.

I rubbed some cream guilders wax onto the decorative flourishes.

Add some glitter to your girl to finish.

I will add some magnetic tape at a later date and pop it onto my fridge :-).
