It's day 18 of 31 Days of Creative Inspiration. This week is Paper week!
I bought this old wooden platter at a garage sale of course... I've been doing all sorts of fun projects with old wooden plates and platters lately. I'm going to be selling them at my etsy shop soon.
I started out by picking some vintage images... I had an old science book with a birthday cake illustration that I wanted to use.
The patterned paper is a Crate paper pad... http://www.cratepaper.com/home.html
Lay everything out and then start adding mod podge... cover your plate with a layer before you add images. You can smooth down bumps with your fingers but don't fuss with it too much... it will look sooooo much better when it is dry.
While waiting for a 2nd coat of mod podge I made a card to go with the plate, using up the 1 inch scraps I cut.
Today I'm linking up here...http://linda-coastalcharm.blogspot.com/ Check out the other great projects!
