Free Jacob's plate!

With a tin of cream-crackers, we received a white, square plate, free. It had 'Jacob's' on the corner, and an ugly design all over it.

SO: I decided that it would be a perfect place to paint some blue roses :)

First, I did the background - and it had to be in black, mainly, to cover the name and the icky design. But, all-black is so blah, so I added patches of blue and red.

Then, it was time for the roses. My favourite rose is the blue rose, so that's what I painted:

The plate, sitting on my husband's laptop

And the obligatory close-up

I am quite happy with the way this one turned out ;)
