I hope these pictures work for y'all as I just got them posted to my webpage on my ISP, which I hate and am convinced they are out to make my life miserable. Anyway, the first one should show & you can click the URL's for the other two & see them yourselves!
Anyway, I have made many, many a decoupaged plate, and I figured that I would try something different. When I did the plate, I left a 3 X 3 inch square blank in the center by simply taping a piece of paper in that place so I would know where to stop gluing pictures. When I finished gluing the pics (I used watered down Elmer's, you could use Mod Podge, etc.), I painted the back (except for the taped-off square) with acrylic paint. I let that dry & then coated it with Krylon Triple-Thick Glaze. I cut a piece of clear cellophane to fit the edges of the open square, and then glued it on, and glued some grosgrain ribbon around that to seal the rough edges. Then, I found a picture of a cute, cute nephew & cut it to fit, with a little extra at the top so I could easily remove it & change it out if need be.
And here you have it:
