~~**Altered Plate Project**~~

Hi Craft Peeps!!!...
The weekend is here... YAY!!... My post today is an Altered Plate I did for an exchange. First one I have ever done too! It was alot of fun, but BOY.... I sure had a hard time deciding on what to do. In addition this is my first post for I am thier newest edition to the Design Team. Christine, the owner is a wonderful and compassionate person who cares about her customers. offers an array of scrapbooking supplies and hand crafted items such as scrapped composition notebooks, bible bags, thermal coffee cup sleeves, and doggy day mats - all handmade by their family and/or friends.
For my altered plate...
I printed out an image from the internet... I love things about sewing... I don't sew, but love anything to do with it! I first began by appling gesso to the plate... then using spray inks by Inkadinkadoo, I spayed in various areas and just blended them. I torn aound the edges of the image and then distressed the edges using Tim Holtz' Vintage Photo distressing ink. After everything had dried I mod podged the image onto the plate. Curling up the corners of the image (in these areas I kept reappling mod podge in between dry times to really stiffen it up. I then applies mod podge all over the plate to seal everything in. Next I added a vaiety of mulberry flowers and stamens, lace applicades onto either side of the image, mulberry leaves, a thimble. Ribbon flowers and some beautiful sewing theme charms both from The Crafting Family Shoppe...
I hope you enjoy my project...
