LOL You can send me your adress because I'm sure I'm going to make too much plates for me so we can do a personal swap, I'm serious  Wink


kaleesi I used paper napkin for the first, for the second cutouts from paper napkin and yellow rice paper, and for the fairy one I used a coutout from a common folio and FleksFlocks.
FleKs  are a kind of flakes of paint sold in several colors. I seasoned the plate with flakes as if I was cooking and when glue was dry I remove excess flakes and paint it white.

I hope you can understand my explanation, I feel stupid trying to speak english  Embarrassed

Awwww, don't feel stupid - you are wonderful to try to explain to us Smiley  I think I get the idea. What kind of glue did you use?

I'd love to swap but I don't think I make anything worthy and I have a feeling you live far away Wink

 Angry Dont' say that! I'm sure you can do worthy crafts, as your computer earrings! Don't be fool and if you really want to swap with me just send me a pm, ok??

And yes, I live far away, exactly in Spain, but I promise this is not a problem for swaping ^^

I posted a question about just this kind of project, but didn't get any answers.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181360.0

How do you keep the paper from getting all wrinkly around the "corners" and at the same time keep the pattern from going all wonky?  Anyone have any suggestions for glue?  I'd appreciate any help I could get!  Thanks in advance!
