What can you eat on, wash, and use as art?

Plates. Yep. Plates!

I don't know why I have a fascination with them, but I do. And the possibilities are endless. Here's a few ideas.

Blue Plate Special! Arrange plates with the same color or style.

Have a cluster of prints or designs you like!

Find some old china (flea markets, thrift stores, antique stores, grandma's house), get some letter transfers from your local Hobby store, and then get creative!

If you are out and find one plate that doesn't match anything else, why not make a collage out of all the fun prints?!

This is my favorite! If you are like me, I find things that speak to me and keep them lying around. Plates can be part of conversational art piece. Take the old and the new and mix it up! You never know what you might get....

Have fun,
