Wow have I had a brilliant week already this week! I've spent the last two days struggling with blogger and getting nowhere. I scheduled a post for The Craft Barn yesterday which promptly disappeared then today's post for Try it on Tuesday has gone walkabout too. When I posted my sample on the TioT blog it was there in edit posts but didnt show when posted!!! Help I'm Jinxed!!
Anyway I think it's working ok now (fingers crossed) so I'll try again.
Yesterday, then, was my turn to post for a Gift Week over at The Craft Barn so if you visited there you would have seen this little picture along with the other two that go with it. I really enjoyed using my promarkers to make 'real art' and am thrilled with this little project.
If you do get over to The Craft Barn Blog leave me a comment so I know you've visited!
Todays post should have been the new Challenge from Try it on Tuesday which is an alter it project coincidently sponsored by The Craft Barn. Give it a go and you'll be in with a chance of winning a £15 voucher.
The Challenge is to alter something using mosaics, a challenge I took very literally.
I don't know if you realise that I've been making my bathroom into a wet room and have been retiling it using mosaic tiles - Never again ! they are an absolute pain to get right but here is a photo of the bathroom almost complete with little grey mosaic tiles. You might even recognise the birds in the window!
Now altering a bathroom - will that count as an altered mosaic I wonder?
I did use some of the mosaic tiles which were left from the bathroom though to make my little wall plaque
I painted the tiles with gesso then coloured them with TH Inks which I then stamped over with a mosaic stamp which I've had forever. It took almost as long to repeat stamp the mosaic as it did to tile the bathroom!
Had a play too with some flitter glu which I used along with foil to make the background. Now that's amazing stuff! .......... Wonder if it'll work on walls????
Hope I've tempted you to have a go this week, if not with the tiling then maybe with TioT challenge.
Now for the real challenge - lets see if this posts!!!
Now .......... should I get aubergine towels or teal?..................
