7Gypsies Photo Tray Project

7Gypsies Photo Tray
So my latest ongoing project, 
(there are always 3 or 4 of these
on the go:)
I found a great purchase at our
local Michaels Craft Store here
in Victoria. Turns out they had
just heard about 7Gypsies products
and had only brought a few of these
in to 'test' the market....
I bought 1/2 of what they had
on the shelf! 
So after seeing tons of projects using
this tray for family pictures and such,
I decided mine would be for the 
'Wild bunch' 
in my life, backyard and in
my home.
As this will be a slightly ongoing
project, I decided I'll post each
space as it is accomplished.
This is 'Big Boy'
Our local longest living 'patriarch'
of our herd. At this time, I figure he's
related, (fathered), at least 5 generations
of our local herd.
There's a long history with Big Boy, and
wonderful stories to be told, and yes
he was this close when I took the photo:)

Now, the photo I used a new technique
that I've been experimenting with.
Taking sand paper, inks, baby wipes,
any other mediums to play with the photo.
This works great if you don't like the
background of a photo, or if you just 
want to create a 'grunge' look,
which is what I was going for with
this photo.

Don't know yet who's going to be 
featured in the next photo,
so stay tuned, as it'll be a totally
different species:)
