Usually, on Fridays I feature finished art work—and you can find that in my Gift Shop or Collector's Gallery—but, today, I wanted to show you this tray I am working on. It is a thrift-store find and my first altered tray. It took a while to lay down the foundation layered of paper and glue because of all the sections. Now, the fun part—looking for bits and bobs to fill in the spaces. It is like a treasure hunt! I have gone through a lot of the books I have in my studio. I may have to hit the thrift stores this weekend. I plan to add a fastener on the back so it can be hung on the wall when it is finished. Stay tuned to see how this piece develops.
