Iris had so much fun creating this display tray for her daughters. Iris wanted to recreate the scenes of summer for her kids and what better way to decorate and embellish the tray but to use the miniature toys in her daughter's Sylvanian House collection.
Iris used the beautiful Memory Works Simple Stories ‘100 Days of Summer’ paper range for each of the backgrounds in the 7gypsies tray, as well as using the stickers and handcut elements as embellishments.
These small pieces are always left around lying on the floor, table tops... always at the risk of being thrown away, so Iris picked up a few, and attached it to her tray, making sure that these small pieces will never be lost to her children.
Iris took an old jar from her cupboard and inked away using alcohol inks to create this subtle antique rose coloured jar for her tissue and fabric tapes. A mixture of her favourite mediums were smeared at the lower part of the jar to add a rich texture to it.
Prima vines and flowers adorn the top of the jar and metal butterfly and paper clips tie the whole look and feel of a vintage beauty.
