~* Shabby Chic Altered Wood Printer's Tray using Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings *~

Happy Aloha Friday!
Sharing an altered wood printer's tray that I created for a my friend Bonnie's lace giveaway challenge.  I used a Melissa and Doug wood tray that I painted with gesso.  I adhered tissue paper that had text on it all over the sides and back of the tray.  I distressed it again with gesso.  
I adhered designer paper from the Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings collection in each of the boxes.  I then embellished with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, cabochons (Wild Orchid Crafts and Claire's), teapot and tea cup wood pieces from Kaisercraft, yummy laces (Wild Orchid Crafts, May Arts, Prima Alencon, The Piece By Piece, lavishlaces), a wood Scrabble piece, fabric rosettes (lavishlaces and Making Memories), half back pearls, trinket pearls tied in knots, a "milk glass" bead, and Claire's jewelry pieces.  I distressed everything with gesso.  The teapot and tea cup were painted with gesso and then I rubbed on Distress Ink in Tattered Rose.  I added Thickers to spell out "bonnie."  I also added some paper doilies, crochet doilies, and crochet flowers.
I am also submitting this project into Sugar Creek Hollow: #61 Clean It Out Challenge.  I used everything that was in my stash, including an older paper collection.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
*hugs* and Much aloha,
Steph :)

I'm not at all surprised that you went with the tea tray. :-) The pastels are so pretty and the little tea pot and cup peeping out are so sweet. Another lovely creation Steph! Hugs!
