I'm still here. I've bee busy working on my niece's present. It's a tribute to her Grandmother. It's okay for my 1st try at this. Making and stamping and painting all my own tiles from polymer clay. I also used some of her old jewelry. Glass tiles and milliflora. I will say it was a lot of fun making. What next.

This summer i went to an art show in Des moines,Iowa. I went with my sister and her daughter Abby. We saw this beautiful piece. It was a wooden plaque (very large) covered in these little tiles, with cool designs and colors, with quotes and little sayings, all combined to make a really neat piece. It was an instant favorite for all of us. price tag.... 500.00 I thought, wow i could make that.
I went home and got busy. I had almost everything to get started. polymer clay pemo and sculpty 1,2,3. rubber stamps and paint. Let me say it is very addicting. and I'm having so much fun with this. Making all these little tiles, different sizes and different designs. It's limitless. I haven't made any finished product yet. I want plenty of tiles to work with.
