Printer's Tray finally finished.

I have not been posting much lately as I've been so busy. I finally finished the printer's tray for my neighbours. They have a fishing boat called Ocean Twilight. I spent hours tying and labeling the different knots before I actually started the tray.

The tray was spray painted with antique white matte finish. The metal drawer pull is alcohol inked in blues, red, silver and gold. Each square was done as a separate "picture" with the exception of the photos which were cut to line out in the adjacent squares. Stamps were used for the letters in the title "Ocean Twilight". The circles behind the letters were cut on the Cricut from Simply Sweet and are heat embossed. I used many different techniques for the squares, stamping, heat embossing, outline stickers colored with copics and a lot of different embellies from my stash. The letters in the square saying cod were cut from Printing Press cart on the Cricut. The fish netting was saturated with Mod Podge to stiffen it. The lighthouse, anchor, sea gulls and life ring were cut on the Cricut from Life's a Beach cart. The waves were cut from Wall Decor and More. I nailed cording around the frame with tiny finishing nails.
