Photo Tray Decor

This was a gift for a girlfriend . . .

Her niece had recently taken some excellent pics of her kids. I loved the sepia pics and just knew they would go great with the Bo Bunny Timepiece collection I had purchased recently!

I used this collection for all the background papers and for most of the embellishments. The initial letters were some that I have had FOREVER and they were white. So I used some Distress Stain and Ink to change their color to match. I then used some alcohol inks to change the appearance of what was a silver dragonfly (on the E), the chipboard gear (on the T), the brad (by the N) to pull out the hearts and the key on the fence (top right). The metal letters were from an old stash. I used zipdry to adhere them. I cut the gear and the fence using Tim Holtz dies and then whitewashed and inked the fence. The quote on the bottom was from the collection. I used pop dots to add dimension. I then added some bling, buttons and ribbon to dress it up!

What a fun gift and at minimal expense. I had everything except the photo tray ($10 at Hobby Lobby . . . and wait for a 40% coupon hehe). FYI. . . She and her husband both loved it!

The queen of photo tray altering is Heather so she is back to show us one she made :)


  1. love the colors you used, they go so well with the photos. Aren't alcohol inks awesome? I love that you can just change the color to suit your project.

  2. Super nice! Love the BW photos with the red and cream.
