It doesn't take much to distract me from my intended projects does it! This time it was some Pebeo 150 porcelaine paint which caught my attention. I bought some cheap white plates from Tescos, and some black paint which you cure in the oven to become dishwasher proof, and this is what I made. I used a little stencil that I cut from an old brochure.
I have a thing about topiary trees, and also black and white artwork, and so I combined the two.
I think these would make nice gifts - with some homemade cookies on them of course!
