To finish the series from the holidays about the beautiful 7gypsies artist trays, our design team have scoured the internet to bring you some more stunning examples. We thank all the artists below who have allowed us to share their projects here.
Nic Howard create this stunning example for a Live with Prima class last year. We love how she has drawn on a narrow colour palette which just serves to make the black and white photos stand out. She has cleverly incorporated packaging and a wealth of creative ideas in each cavity, and brought them all together with the bouquet and title which gives it depth and detail.
Aki, informs us that she has this hanging in the front room as a welcome display for friends and family to see. Aki has used a good mixture a products from 7gypsies, Sassafras Lass, My Mind's Eye
Jenni Bowlin. Thank You so much Aki for letting us share your fabulous project.
This beautiful tray was created by Janice Boon from Singapore. When she first saw this artist tray, she immediately thought of it as a perfect medium for her to be able to show a few memorable moments from her wedding. Aside from the stunning photos and lovely design, this tray also has a "secret" compartment which is the envelope from Maya Road which houses some of her notes about the event.
Here’s another Printer’s Tray decorated in a vintage style. Jasmine Low, Singapore, put together this adorable printer’s tray for her mother for Mothers Day. It features BasicGrey’s Capella line and Prima flowers. Notice how Jasmine’s put the photo outside the tray for prominence? Such a neat idea! Jasmine tells us that her mother adored the tray, and we’re not surprised.
Thank you to Kathy Wade for sharing two wonderful examples of how she decorated the 7 Gypsies Artists Tray. Here are some words from Kathy "I made this tray for my sister using photos from her recent wedding. I used a 7 Gypsies tray and lots of different embellishments including some Hero Arts stamps. I included part of her wedding program, a tag that was attached to the wedding favours and of course some very cute pictures" It's wonderful that Kathy added these personal touches from the wedding day.
Words from Kathy on decorating this 7 Gypsies Artists Tray "I made this photo tray as a gift for my niece, Grace, for her 8th grade graduation. I included photos of Grace with her mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, family and friends. I used several Hero Arts stamps on this, as well as Technique Tuesday stamps. I made ATC's and inserted them into the tray." Thank you for sharing these wonderful creations with us Kathy!
Kelly Booth shows us another fabulous use for the Artist tray, to hold these awesome ATC's. These ATC's were made by Kelly herself, the Hero Arts Hostesses as well as Jennifer McGuire and Shari Carroll. How fantastic do they look displayed in the artists tray. Many thanks Kelly for sharing your fabulous idea!
7 Gypsies' DT coordinator Paula Cheney created this stunning Shadowbox Tray, which she shared on their blog 'One Lucky Day' - and has generously agreed to share here. As well as a range of 7 Gypsies papers and embellishments, Paula has used cotton reels, a sprig of lavender, a touch of fabric and a vintage glass bottle. It is a wonderful inspiration to use the little bits and pieces you find yourself hanging on to and create something beautiful with them.
