Generations Collection by Simple Stories
Serving Tray
Created by Charlie LaBonte
 
 
 
 
 
I love snooping around in collectible/antique stores.  You can find some of the most wonderful stuff and then ideas spring to life.  I was in on of our local stores, Pole Barn Primitives, and found this really cool serving tray.  It was pretty ratty, as the felt under the glass had rotted away and in the process discolored the glass.  I took it home, dismantled it and scrub the glass real good and tore out all that ratty material. Now all that is it is missing are the pictures. (you won't be serving coffee with this now)

 
 
All the paper is under the glass.  Once I had the layout completed, I put it all back together and then added my embellishments to the top side of the glass. 
 

 
Here is a close up of the corner cluster.  You can also see that I left the paint in it "Old" condition.   I love playing with this stuff, makes my heart sing.

I hope you like my inspiration project and that it opens your eyes to other possibilities.  Please keep The Hens Den in mind for your shopping needs.
