New Journal Page & Rectangular Trays in Progress
I finished this journal page and thought it would make a wonderful bottom to a tray. I found these small rectangular plastic trays and began by covering them with Gesso. Then I painted some pretty colors around the edges and glued a copy of my journal page on the the bottom. Lastly I took some of those glass nuggets and embellished the outer edges of the trays with a tile adhesive. I still have a few more steps. Today I will be spray painting the back side with a bronze colored spray paint and then I will fill the bottom of the trays with a two art resin to protect the image and secure the glass nuggets. The resin and the glass nuggets add weight and richness to a plain old plastic tray. I think they will be a nice addition to my display for the Art Festival in October. I will post more photos of each individual tray once they are finished. they have the same image on the floor of the tray but each one has been painted and embellished a little differently.
Have a great day everyone!!
