Try It on Tuesday - Framed!!!

Our new theme at Try It on Tuesday is 'In the Frame' and if you pop over to the blog you will see some fabulous examples to get you thinking! The details are on the blog but just to remind you that anything you make is acceptable as long as it has a frame somewhere!!
Sometimes the time just seems to run away so I made this for myself as a reminder that I can't do everything!!
It looks different with sun light shining on it
It started out as a little party tray for peanuts - I bought six of the clear plastic trays two years ago when visiting my SIL and hubby.
One appeared on my blog
but the photos seem to have disappeared from the post!!It was made for my Granddaughter!

The rest made their way to the garden fete we had here two weekends ago - and were sold!!!





I used a variety of alcohol inks to colour the frames and then found small images as well as using punches and chit chat words to decorate them.

I hope you will come and join us at Try It On Tuesday this time!

Thanks for looking, Chris

You got great effects here, Chris.
Of course I don't mind you using my idea of boxes, I don't really think it's my idea at all, but I have been using them for a while.
