A Blessed Plate

I love spray paint, I love painting things around the house. This was a terra cotta plant plate I have had for ages. I painted it black, set it on top of scrap book paper and cut around the base of it for the circle.

Then I took the paper and inked the edges...

Glued it down and added some 'silk leaves.'

Sorry this is blurry...

I wanted to print out the words on my printer and it told me to install another printer...hello again!!!! So I used rub ons, and letters I already had. Added some more silk leaves, ribbons, and voila! It now stands in my dining room as a reminder to be thankful and not complain!

Blessings,

Debbie

Very unique craft. I keep a plate on my counter which I use to post the daily menu on with a dry erase marker. One of the "Blessed Plates" would be a beautiful second plate for my counter space. Thanks for sharing your craft.

Very pretty and very clever. I do the same thing with the advertised plates that are forsale in mag and the Sunday paper. I cut them out and glue them to GW plates and seal with a matt finish. I only use them for myself or a sweet surprize gift for a friend. I loved what you did with the added in scrapbook element.
