A tray re-do… might be re-done over again…

After a disastrous Christmas in my craft sales due to keeping everything off Etsy for a craft fair which didn’t go to plan, so there’s quite a lot of Christmas themed things left.
I realise there is a Christmas every year but some things are too bulky to store and so, I’m changing them.

This tray was all set for Christmas with Christmassy paper decoupage and ‘Let it snow’ written on in a snow white permanent marker.IMG_6406

So I scrapped off the paper and then gave the whole thing a jolly good sanding down.


Once done, I rummaged through my collection of papers and found some Rob Ryan paper cut wallpaper samples, (if you don’t know Rob’s work click on the link attached to his name above, lovely paper cuts).
I had these samples after seriously considering the paper for my bedroom, however once I had my new curtains up I realised that it would be too much (when all my other stuff was in the room!).
So the samples were added to my collection of papers.
I chose the yellow one for the tray.

I stuck the paper down, but, and this is why I think I may have to re-do I didn’t like the join (not enough paper to do in one piece), let me know what you think maybe? I’m tempted to take it up again and maybe use the two shades of blue paper I have and do it in stripes.

I have drawn a leaf pattern on top of the cut-out design in a fine gold pen.

The whole thing is varnished and ready for use.img_68951.jpgAlthough I think I may change it now I see the photos…not sure about that middle bit.

Anyway, back soon
love Rosie
