a project to share

This is what I did for my crafty combo in the HOF contest. It started as a bare wooden tray. I painted it with several coats of spring green acrylic paint. I cut Daisy D patterned papers into squares, inked the edges and mod podged them to the bottom of the tray. I used a Making Memories foam stamp with blue ink to put that image on both of the long sides of the tray. The words are MM rub ons. They say Find peace and love. Find is my word for this year. Then I brushed several coats of glossy mod podge over the whole thing to make it shiny. I put the tray in a chair so you can see the size of it.

Don't forget about my RAK. Read about it here.

I think there's an old wooden tray at my mother's house that can use a "makeover" - thanks for the idea.
