Pretty Spingtime Embellished Tray

Becky Conley's tray is featured on the Simon Says Stamp blog today, but we've got the details!

She decorated an tray using a multitude of the MANY colorful choices of Dew Drops by The Robin's Nest and the performance of The Best Glue Ever! with assistance from a mighty tool: Embellie Gellie,

Here's the finished tray - 

And here's where she started --

Becky painted a wooden tray with white paint, then covered the tray with a layer of the Best Glue Ever. Once the glue was dry and completely clear she used Embellie Gellie to help her place the Dew Drops.  To make it easier she started by gluing her design first, then worked on the background.

You can see her work in progress --


When the tray was totally covered with Dew Drops, she squeezed 3d Crystal Lacquer all over, concentrating on filling in between the Dew Drops. After the lacuquer was dry, Becky applied epoxy over the top of the design about 1/4" the top of the Dew Drops to ensure the surface was level.

For a complete list of the supplies she used, including which Dew Drops for each part of the flower check out Becky's blog!

That tray looks fantastic. It would have been diabolical to attempt it without the Embellie Gellie! Pretty colors.
