Vintage Altered Plate

Well here is my altered plate that I made for the altered club!! I am really pleased with how it came out. The gluing was a little tricky. I used E-6000, which has the most horrible odor. Make sure you ventilate if you ever use it!
This photo is of my grandma who was born is 1917 & I believe it was taken when she graduated from HS. I had this picture in my room when I was growing up & it has always been so special to me. Grandma told my mom that the blouse she was wearing was a black satin tunic. I just love the flowers at her throat and I tried to give a similar effect with the embellishments. I have a couple more plates to do & I will hang them together in my dining room.
Well, I am off to see what the other ladies have created!! Can't wait to see every one's plates & share mine.


  1. Hey Lucy, i sure enjoyed the class
