There are just two embellishments that have dimension, but I placed them at the very top of my tray. I planned on using my tray, not hanging it, so I needed it flat for the most part. After all was dry, I used homemade glimmer mist before sealing it with a gloss varnish (2 coats).
It looked a little, well, plain, so I added gold paint and Stickles to the tops of the handles and felt satisfied. I coated them with varnish also. I love my tray with its vintage look. I loved it so much I taught a workshop at a local antique store, The Merry Memory Company, and 8 people showed up to create their own unique versions of trays for Valentine's Day.
So to all my crafting peeps, enjoy this Valentine's week. Spread some love. The world can sure use it!
