Paperartsy Inspired Coaster

Hello Everyone and thank you for visiting today.

A couple of weeks ago over on the Paperartsy blog Wanda Hentges was sharing a project on ceramic tile art - HERE

I wanted to have a go so found a plain old tile and gave it a couple of coats of gesso as it was very shiny.

I went to Stamp Magic at Doncaster on Sunday and thought this was the perfect opportunity to try out my new Paperartsy goodies!

I gave my tile two coats of Marlin Fresco paint followed by two coats of Evergreen. I then sanded back some of the Evergreen to reveal both the Marlin and the white tile underneath in places.

I used my new Lin Brown stencil and sponged through Hint of Mint and Plum Fresco. I highlighted the petals using my white Sharpie pen.

I sealed the tile with a couple of coats of Satin Glaze and then added some Royal Amethyst Treasure Gold around the edges.

It was missing something so I added the two corners from Creative Expressions and then coloured them using the Royal Amethyst Treasure Gold again.

Finally I added four cork feet the to bottom of the tile and now it's ready for use as a coaster!

Loved creating this, thanks to Wanda and Paperartsy for the inspiration!
