Mosaics?

Hello my friends and welcome. Today I am joining the Craft Barn team and have made something with mosaics, two cards and a tag!




Here I used the Crafty Individuals books and sneakily cut up the tiles, they were perfect for this! In the centre of the tiles I've used diamond glaze. It makes them look a little more like tile.





My card , the rectangular one, can be used in either orientation, landscape or portrait. That can be useful depending on which sentiment you want to use. I think that these mosaic cards are universal, very general appeal although the rectangular one is slightly more masculine, perhaps?


I love the colours of these tiles mmm yum. Thanks for checking out my post !! Have a wonderful weekend,  Gay xxx
