Attered Printer Tray- "Beautiful little Moments"

Hello crafters!!!
A very happy crafty weekend to you!!
I love to challenge myself with new styles and techniques all of the time. I altered a printer tray first time. It has a perfect surface to display photos and collectables. You can also tell a story by displaying photos of your family. I picked up some photos of my brother and sister-in -law, enjoying their trip at Paris, Europe and America. Its a great way to document your trips and relive memories. I had a lot of fun creating this project.
Here is my creation:
    I first applied a coat of mod podge matte finish to the wooden board. After dried it, I applied a layer of white acrylic paint. For the texture and distressing look I applied Pearl white and sparkling pearl golden green colour to it, as their living room has a white base with some green and pink texture print on the wall. This really gave a shimmer touch to the frame.
Then I measured and cut out the pattern papers to fit in the squares. Once all paper sheets were securely in place, I began to build my theme scenes in each box  and then pulled out all the yummy goodies I wanted to use. I added a music note paper washi tape along the ledges inside the box.
 Here is some close up pictures, enjoyed:). I picked up metal corners and painted them too. look at this beautiful shabby look lace.
 I applied glossy accent on the clock for depth. I think this PP is perfect match.
 See that gorgeous satin ribbon double loop bow with beautiful diamond beaded leaf charm.
 In this box, I adhered a old cameo in a metal charm and attached with a chain which is painted in metallic copper colour. I love these dolls, they are so cute and I embellished this box with some foam flowers, a white flower trim with pearls attached on it, pollens and  hexagon gems.

 Who isn't dreaming of Paris, for this compartment I added a little Eiffel Tower charm and matching PP, a shiver flower flourish to make it more romantic look .

 For this section, I used a Tim Holtz Alteration shadow Press embossing folder- to create The word "explore". I distresses the edges using Vintage photo distress ink and distress marker for the shadow. Added some epoxy sentiment, adhesive camera tag.
 Now, for the next section there is a special wishing theme photo which is very popular place there. So, I divided this section in two. I added a wish epoxy sentiment sticker with a coin attached on a silver circle. I filled a small glass bottle with some blue coloured beads. I rolled a small piece of CS and distress it and placed it in a bottle to create a message.
                                                                                            I love dangling the chain on and in between around the edges of this window box by adding some metal flower charms..
 Here is a better view of the bottle and wishing coin:

 Now come to the next section, which is belong to great Walt Disney Adventureland!!! At the bottom edge I added a chipboard fence with a Palm tree with some rose flowers .
 This is the focal point of the box, I added a heart trim lace at the edge and a heart chain set along their photo. A chipboard LOVE embellish with pearls and a tag with a message.

 In this section, I layered the two photos together and attached a pom pom trim lace at the bottom panel, then I glued some pearls in it.
 I added a miniature lock and key attached with a chain.
At the last section, I added a sweet little bird sitting on a palm tree along the ledgers inside the box with a fence and flowers.

I am very pleased with the outcome of this printer's tray.  Hope you enjoyed seeing my project. I love to read your  comments and feedback.
