Art Tiles

I have been having a lovely time making some mixed media art tiles. I pretty much followed a tutorial by Linda who's Youtube channel is called liveartnow - if you get the chance check out her other videos - she is a fabulous mixed media artist.


The square ones are 1" x 1" and are on wooden tiles and the round ones are a little bigger and are on chipboard. It's hard to see in the photo but they have a number of layers including gesso, torn paper and stamping. The colour is added with Distress Inks and each one has a layer of Glossy Accents on top to give a lovely finish. 

These really are fun to make, cost pennies (compared to the ones you can find in the shops) and are great embellishments.
