Shabby Chic tray

This tray is the middle sized of a set of three trays from Calico Crafts
I wanted a romantic summer theme and started by painting the tray in pink acrylic paint
When this was dry I dabbed petrolium jelly in places I wanted to look worn then painted two coats of cream acrylic I rubbed the tray with a cloth when it was dry to reveal the pink undercoat giving me the shabby look I wanted
The base of the tray is covered with letters paper, tea-stained doilies, pictures,  rub-ons sentiment and german scrap roses, stuck down with mod podge   Then everything is painted with outdoor mod podge to give it protection   Supplies from Calico crafts
