Wishing you Hope, Peace, Joy...

Warm Greetings! 

I have another beyond the page project to share with you all today.  This one combines the Kaiser Occasional BTP Christmas Tree Photo Display with the Merry and Bright Collection. 

This is what the Photo Display looks like in it's natural state:

The outside edges were painted with Brown Umber and the inside covered with various papers from the Merry and Bright collection.  I did find that covering the back piece first was easier than trying to do it when it was assembled with the top insert piece attached over the top. 
The outer edge of the tray was 'trimmed' with a little decoration. A thin strip of paper punched with a decorative edge was attached around the edge. Helmar 450 Gel Glue did a fine job of this. The bond is strong and dries clear.
A window box effect was created with some gate wooden flourishes attached on either side of the bottom opening.
Fussy cut elements from the Merry and Bright 'Vivacious'  paper were layered with a few Collectables.  Seriously I love these things, just can't say enough how versatile they are.  They are perfect on their own for adding a little accent or layering with other elements.
Larger and mini paper blooms were added around the photo.  Coral and Honey coordinate beautifully with this range.

This is totally gorgeous. I love the punched strips around the edges and the gates opening up to show the photo of your girls. Love it!
