Another member on the All Things Tim Yahoo list, Leslie posted about how she had been using old silver trays in her altered art projects. This intrigued me so much I thought I just have to try that.
Below are some of the trays I have made and will be using for Christmas gifts this year.
This tray is for a dear friend, more like a second mother to me. She is 79 years old. This tray is for her and its a picture of her mother!! I used a Graphic 45 envelope and some flowers along with flourishes from Tim among other things.
This tray is for my sister Beverly, shes the one on the right. This is a picture of her and our other sister who passed away in the 70's. This image is from an Easter back in the 50's
Last but definitely not least this final tray is for my daughter. Its a picture of her grand parents, my parents both gone now.
This picture was actually taken on top of the
Empire State Building in New York on their Honeymoon!
Circa early 1940's
The flowers used on this tray came from the Round Robin Swap Box currently being swapped on the list. Thank you whomever put them in there for they go perfectly with the paper I used.
Hope they like them as much as I did making them. I think I'm addicted to making these now. Cant get enough. Oh yeah, I got the trays at our local Goodwill store. Didn't pay more than a buck or so for any of them.
