I watched this video: Creating Art Tiles by Joggles.com and was inspired to give it a try. I did one set that followed the technique pretty closely, using gesso and inking the edges. I decided to try another set using more color – you can definitely tell which ones are from the second batch!
I used regular chipboard that I have in my stash, some pieces were thinner than others, but it didn’t really matter. I have lots of little embellishments that I used along with some Tim Holtz small talk stickers and some really old sticker words from Heidi Swapp.
I decided to make these into magnets to make them useful as well as pretty. At first they were kind of curvy so I put them under an old crock for a few days and they flattened out perfectly.
I also used a couple of different Tim Holtz ephemera packages, one of them had really little bits in it that were perfect for the small ‘canvases’ I was working with.
