7Gypsies Printer Tray

I've had one of these printer trays sitting on my shelf of ' bits to do' for quite a while now.Don't ask me why,but this evening I suddenly decided to do something with it. I'm going to make something Christmassy I think. I started by painting it wit a bronzy acrylic paint...
I've got some really vintagey Graphic 45 papers that are from last year - I think I might use them somehow. I just can't decide whether to use some photos or just make it ornamental ..hmmm...
Once the bronze was dry I decided to sponge it over with gold.
So now it's sitting in the craft room drying nicely.I'm going to settle down now and carry on with the rainbow cot blanket I'm making for someone.


Quite a nice evening tonight whilst they were watching football with not such a good result -oh dear !

I think it would look great as a vintagy decorative christmassy piece....Graphic 45 would be perfect for that.

Sorry for your football fans! I will be interested to see what you do with this. I've been contemplating teaching a niche thing for my Christmas class.
