Today I am sharing my Faux Tile Tutorial with you.  I am using Betty Dorm Mouse digi from SIMPLY B STAMPS and 1 of the chairs plus one of the Tea Party Friends images from LITTLE MISS MUFFET STAMPS.  I have flipped the Betty Dorm Mouse Digi and added the Tea Party Friend Elephant to the Tea Party Chair that I chose from this set.  I colored everything with Copics and used papers from Core-dinations and DP from Fabi-Scraps.  This tea cup/tea pot paper was just perfect for the New Release!  I added stitched ribbon from PaperMart as well.

Now for my tutorial, the end goal is to make the image look like tile that has been pieced together.  So, first make sure your image is cut so that you can easily figure out what size your smaller squares will be.  Also helps to have your base mat cut before you begin - mine is 1/4 inch larger than the image piece.  You will then cut up your image making your squares as close to equal measurements as possible.

Now your squares are cut, you will apply glossy glue to each one.

 Try to get the glue evenly spread on the entire square and if possible, try to get all air bubbles out.

 Once you have all the squares covered, wait for the glue to dry - the drier the better before you move it to prevent excessive cracking.

Once the glue is dry, time to stick all the pieces onto your mat piece

And finally, onto your card and Voila - you have made Faux Tile!!

Carol Christie said...

Fantastic, I would never have thought of this :) Thanks for joining us at Sarah Hurley Challenges this time, Carol xx

Sandy Trefger said...

Love your adorable card and the tutorial! That is fabulous. However, for my challenge the stitching must be done by you on paper. So this one won't qualify for the random or top three. I hope you'll get a chance though to enter a different project with stitching this month. Thanks for participating in my challenges!
