"Faith" display tray

Hello friends and happy July! I just can't figure out where this year is going! One of my goals for this year was to do more faith-based art, and I recently had the chance to get my hands on some wonderful faith-related patterned papers. The collection I'm showcasing on this project is the aptly titled "Faith" line by Simple Stories:

I added bits and pieces from these two 6x6 pads that were in my stash as well-the colours and patterns coordinated amazingly well with my main paper choice!

For most of the cut-aparts that I used, I just flipped the paper over and traced around the shape, then added a little bit  along each edge before cutting them out. Many of the images were fussy-cut, then applied to contrasting backgrounds.

I adhered all the images I wanted to use to the base of the tray (other than those to be attached to the overlay, or would overlap it.) I used foam adhesive to pop up smaller pieces for dimension and interest.

I painted the overlay piece black, then heat-embossed its entire surface with Ranger Black Sparkle glitter embossing powder. I'm normally not a big glitter user, but I really liked the way it made this project pop!

The buttons were painted in pink and yellow to coordinate with the papers, then heat embossed with a light coat of Ranger Bridal Tinsel glitter embossing powder, then tied with a piece of teal thread.

Close-ups of some of the panels  and the dimensional items added to them:

(the little pieces of clothing were from some very OLD paper in my stash, and I couldn't resist using
them to illustrate a verse starting with the word "clothe"!!)

I hope you enjoyed this lively, uplifting and colourful project of mine as much as I enjoyed creating it!  The positive messages warm my heart; I wish you all a wonderful week full of love, joy and creativity!
