Waiting for Spring Display Tray Dome

Hello all! Lora here for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts! I love winter. But with all the bone chilling rain we have had, I admit I am beginning to look forward to spring. Here is a little dream of spring.....
I began with the Display Tray Dome.
The Henna Doodles 2
And the Delicate Frames and Ornaments
I gave the front of the dome tray, the Henna Doodles and the Delicate Frames a coat of gesso and then a good coat of white acrylic paint and set them aside to dry.
Using the back of the Dome Tray as template, I cut paper for the front and back side.
It looks pretty already!
I set it aside and started making fun little components for inside each of the frames within the tray. I used the Graphic 45 Flutter papers...perfect for spring.
I played around with the layout until I liked where everything was placed. Some things I used and some I didn't. I have a pretty box I save all the bits and bobs I don't use for another day.
I placed the top of the display tray dome on the back piece and lightly traced around each of the frames to give me some reference on where to glue things down. Then did just that, making sure to adjust things as they fit within the confines of the frame. Then I glued the frame down.
After things dried, I attached the Henna Doodles to the frame and added little details with some Stickles Cosmos glitter glue.
As you can tell in this photo, I used a lot of foam tape to make things pop off the background and give the piece some depth.
Come on Spring!
