Tando printers trays

Good morning everyone. This week over on The Craft Barn blog it's everything Tando. If you're not familiar with Tando they do an amazing line of lazer cut chipboard shapes and masks. One of the products I like are the mini printers trays. But, of course, being me; I was trying to look at them differently and came up with this....
 I've taken my large journal which has been made with thick card sheets and used all 3 parts of the tray to insert "windows" into the pages. Each window has acetate both sides and different inclusions. It's a bit difficult to photograph well but the effect is great!
Alcohol inks colour the window. The rest of the page is masked and painted with the washers die in areas and then the die cut has been adhered to the left side. The flourish adds a bit of dimension too. The white pen came out to add highlights and a marker adds journalling around the window.

 These give you a better idea of how you can look through the pages........
I also think they make great niches for the fronts of books; like this one. There is a full step by step how to do on The Craft Barn blog HERE so I won't go into details here but I hope you'll go over and take a look!
Have a lovely day everyone!
