Collectors Tray Part Two

Leo here with the next step creating the collectors tray using the Hazelnut Coffee Quirky Kit and a 7Gypsies Letterblock tray. Part one is here if you need to catch up from the beginning,

The last thing I did was to use the small off cuts to cut out some circle shapes. I've used a Nestabilities pinked circle die for mine. I also said to save the rest of the off cut bits of paper.

 Along with those leftover paper pieces I've also now made some flower shaped diecuts from text paper. I've got the rub ons to use from the kit and some leftover paper flowers from my supplies.

Now the flowers aren't the right colour tone for this project so I'm going to colour them with some mist sprays to match in with the tones of the kit papers.
I've used brown, silver and gold inks to colour them with.

Next I'm going to make some layered embellishments to go inside some of the tray sections.
For each embellishment I've started with the largest paper circle then stacked a smaller circle on top using 3D foam pads. The next layer is the text paper flower then the painted paper flower and then finally a small circle of paper:

I'm going to add words to these embellishments so I've used some mini alphabet stickers, (these were in the Sping In Your Step Quirky Kit) on the off cuts of paper sticking them on the paper, cutting around them then distressing the edge.

I want to spell out 'enjoy the small things' so I've made an embellishment for each word.

I've also made some smaller embellishments making use of the rest of the circles of paper and the butterfly rub ons.

I've made more words using the small off cuts of paper with stickers stuck to them and cut out.

All these embellishments I've added to some of the tray spaces along with some of the postage stamps from the kit.

Here's what I've got so far:
Just one more last step to go putting the last finishing touches together and making some mini photo stands.
