From the Designer: "This is an altered plastic tray that I upcycled with several mixed media products. From the FaveCrafts blogger sponsor I used Floracraft Interference paints and RustOleum glitter paint. I also used lots of Prima Marketing Mixed Media products such as gesso, gel and waxes. Finally I used several metal, resin and plastic embellishments to create texture and build layers."
