Printer Tray...an adventure in ephemira








I was very lucky to have received a blank 17"x22" printer tray as a Birthday present from my friend Ruth. It travelled with me from Perth to Sydney.I had such a great time creating this ephemira display and each piece is symbolic. I love that it is a real printer tray and not one of the mass produced pieces that so many companies are creating. I used quite a few techniques and products to create this piece...and for those in Western Australia...this is going to be one of three classes that I will be teaching at a retreat in Perth...I'll post the full details as soon as I have them

I dont like the mass produced ones either. I got one of the Tim H ones for christmas but i cant see me using it ever. I might take it to bits and use the little boxes for something else

This looks beautiful. Printer tray being of good quality makes it that much better. Actually the mass produced one would not blend in with the overall feel at all. Love it.
