I went back to the tile coaster project, basically so I could put things away once I "finished" what I was trying to do! I did a bit of experimenting with materials: paper, vellum and fabric.
Here is what we started out with:
My first experiment was using a piece of fabric, ribbons and vellum.
I Mod-Podged the tile and glued the fabric down, cut the trim and then added that piece of ribbon to the edge.
Next, Mod-Podge over the whole piece.
It was time to give the vellum a try. At first, is was all good - "Whoo hoo! It's working!" Then, I noticed that the vellum seemed to be curling up on the edges and suddenly the whole thing was a big wrinkle!!
It took some squeegying (spelling?) with a credit card to smooth it a bit...
"Okay, so how about paper on fabric?" I thought. Went a bit better. Same process, Mod-Podge on tile and stick down fabric.
As I had done previously, add the saying on paper and Mod-Podge over the whole thing! Muhahaha! Sticky-time, baby!
I tried a different vellum from "Quote Stacks" to see if it might make a difference....
This time, I lifted the vellum and used my fingers to smooth it out. THAT was sticky, just let me say! :o)
Here's the "finished" tiles, just waiting to decide about what to put on top... perhaps polyurethane? We'll see.
Enjoy the day,
