Hi, Something very different today, Made from cardboard that might otherwise have been thrown away. I also used some Silk Clay from Creative Company, along with the Wonder Crystals and Wonder Tape that Justin & Gordon from Be Creative bring to Hochanda.
Years ago I found a battered silver plated try, which had been hammered, so I wanted to make something similar to that with the Wonder Embossing Crystals and add an emblem in the centre. I started by cutting out a 12' circle from an old cardboard box.
I then cut another identical and this time cut a smaller circle within it. This would form the rim of the tray. I stuck this to the base using Cosmic Shimmer Glue from Creative Expressions.
So there wasn't a step between, I used silk clay to form a slope between the rim and the base.
I covered the whole project using Wonder Tape, then covered it with 'Lodolite Quartz' and 'Picture Jasper' Wonder Embossing Crystals. I made it thicker in some areas to give it an uneven surface. Where it is thinner, the surface is pitted giving it the hammered look.
For the centre emblem, I covered a piece of card with a Wonder Sheet and drew a 6' circle. I then added my design inside the circle and cut out all of the sections.
I then peeled off the backing sheet from each section, using the Wonder Crystals I embossed each piece. The colours I used are:
To finish, I secured the design onto the base of the tray using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today. I hope you liked the finished project along with the step by step that I have shared. Hope to see you again very soon. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
