Hello Stranger

Blimey, I didn't realise it had been 9 months since my last post. It's not that I haven't been being creative, but a lot of what I have been doing is for Papercraft Essentials magazine, so I can't blog it. I've also been knitting rather a lot of socks and making mini albums - most of which remain almost, but not quite finished.

Anyway, the other day I was fatally sucked into youtube and came across this excellent tutorial for art tiles by Linda at livartnow and was inspired, as it seems were many others. I ended up making 12 at 1.5" and 22 at 1" and was so thrilled with the results that I'm now making some different shaped ones.

At first I thought my colours were too vivid, but once the Glossy Accents goes on, it all seems to merge and soften. On some of the new ones I'm working on. I'm going to try Crackle Accents and I've also added some scraps of old stamps to the background - we shall see how they turn out.

So, here are the first batch - please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

The first three pics are the 1" ones, followed by the 1.5".


  1. Wow! These look fantastic, Tracy.

  2. Hi Tracy, I just got your comment and came over to have a look and WOW, these are just awesome girl!! I'm so happy that my tutorial inspired you to give it a go, and the result is super :) thank you so much for letting me know, I truly appreciate it!! hugs and smiles, Linda
