So this is a work in progress, I have never tried working with one of these before and I love all the pictures I have seen of others and thought I would give it a try. This is a birthday gift for my step father. I have used some very old pics of me, my son and my grandson. (lol, he isnt even one yet so I guess his pics arnt that old but they are some of the first taken, lol)
I used a 7 Gypsies white painters tray I purchased at Archivers when I was in Atlanta. I used crackle paint on the front to distress a bit (doesnt show well in photo) and rubbed distress inks on a few spots to distress even further. Being for a man I didnt want to use flowers and frills so have been truely at a loss as to how to "decorate" it. I am giving this to him this coming weekend so I have a few more days of looking at what I can add, I think it is missing some pizzaz. Any helpful comments would be greatly appreciated!!
