Tiny Tiles

Oh this was such a fun Swap, I've just been involved with... over at Tammy's Blog
these little tiles look tiny cause they really are!.. each one is only one & a half inches square..
so it was loads of fun finding embellishments small enough to fit each one... Everyone in this swap had given a design brief of what they wanted their tile's theme to be.. We used 'Collections Tiles' which come in a sheet and you just pop them out...
Anyway these are the tiles I have made for the swap... & if you're in the swap.... have fun guessing till yours comes... ;o)
Thanks again Tammy, I'm sure it was tons of work to organise this, and am very grateful and can't wait to get my little tiles back... I am going to frame them together and hang in my craft space... Oh by the way incase your wondering ..... My theme was RUSTY OLD JUNK..... LOL

Oh wow this looks like so much fun!! I would love to guess each person's theme from looking at your tiles - Great DCM cards too! I have the hippy paper ready just not sure if I have the strength to use it! Have a great weekend!

Wow Gillian! These Titles are gorgeous!!! That white one just pops! LOL
You did a great job with the embelishments! I can't get over how 1.5inches can turn out to be a piece of art! LOL
Saw Tammy's too.... I think you guys are gonna have a great exchange!!
HUGS :)

how fab are these?
Will you mount them all on a canvas when you get your collection, Gill - they'd look fantastic as a wall hanging.

1.5 inches is quite generous - a forum I'm on is doing an "inchies" swap - with just a 1" square to play with!

Gorgeous piece of work.
i have a bit of an obsession for squares right now. Ever since i did my non-essentials LO a week ago, I have wanted to use them all the time. I have even tried to disguise them as rectangles with torn edges!!!!
I think tiny squares like these with lots of tiny bits to look at are just perfect!!!!

so gorgeous - what a fabulous swap idea

Flower said...

Wow! All that stuffed into an inch and a half! Each has it's own personality. I love them!

Susan said...

This is the nicest piece of rusty old junk I have EVER seen!! What a great challenge and you have risen to it with great effect, as always, Gillian. Your work is certainly an inspiration to me!
