"Different is Beautiful" Wall Decor

Hello! I'm sharing a piece of wall decor I made using the Prima wooden trays and Salvage District collection. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Salvage District! I already made the same kind of piece using the Tales of You and Me collection, and I really liked how it came out, so I decided to make another one with the Salvage District collection.

So, here it is:

I started out with giving the wooden tray a coat of paint, which was a mixture of black gesso, and the "silver spoon" metalique paint from the Art Alchemy line. Once dry,  I put a wash of diluted white gesso over it. Then I added paper on the inside of each of the trays.  

I fussy cut the "Different is Beautiful" journaling card and placed it in the largest tray over a pice of 2 Crafty chipboard that I inked black. I added some of the Say it in Crystals and a metal piece I had in my stash on the outline of the tray.

On the top of the trays I added the Salvage District vine, and I inked some white flowers from  the French Riviera collection with some VersaMagic "ocean mist" chalk ink. I added some Prima flower trim, as well as some more 2 Craft chipboard in the floral arrangement.

And, I used one of my last cherubs!

 For the middle sized box, I added some more 2 Crafty chipboard, a resin window, and some of the Salvage District ephemera that I white washed. The metal pice with chain is also from Prima. 

For this smallest box, I glued it on top of the other two for added dimension. I thought the bottles/vases ephemera pieces would look great in here, so I added them, layering some of them with glue dots, and added some real glass bottles. The vine coming is Prima. I added some gesso and color bloom mist in "soft teal."

The clock is also Prima. I painted it with gesso, filled it with art stones, sprayed it with more soft teal mist, and added the clock from the ephemera pack. I added some rhinestone chain around the face, and a pretty key to complete the look. 

Here's a closeup that shows the dimension of the bottles and vases. 

Thanks for stopping by!
