Playing With Tiles!

Sometimes, it is fun to pull out supplies you haven't played with in awhile. Sometimes it gives us that creative push we need! For today's T & T, I am going to show you a couple of different ways to create with "tiles." They are easy and fun to work with. You can make a bunch up ahead of time and incorporate them into scrap pages or cards!

I love the impact these 3 squares make on this otherwise simple page! Sometimes it is the little details that make a page special. Alrighty then, pull up a chair........ : )

To stamp on my tiles, I used Memento Ink and a script stamp. But play around with different stamps to give you different effects!

When adhering to a LO or card use a scrap glue and place a heavy book on it until dry. This will prevent the ends from curling.

A few other things you can try are; place beads, sequins, punched paper pieces, or charms into the tile while it is still warm. Sprinkle glitter, flock, or rub ink on the edges. Have fun playing!!!!
