Not just tiles!

Besides the tiles I have stamped and colored I also have done these wooden blocks. These are really fun to work with and very inexpensive to make. I purchased the blocks from Oriental Trading Co. They come in a package of three. I really like the distressed look.

The blocks work well with stamping and coloring or with decorating with papers and embellishments. As with the tiles when I stamp an image on these I use Stazon and color in eith my markers. When using papers I run the size paper I need through my Xyron and then adhere it to the front of the block. The stamped and colored blocks I do spray with a sealer. Because of the rustic look I use a matte spray. I think and added shine of a glossy sealer would take away from the rustic flavor.

I really like the way these turned out. I hope visitors to our craft boutique do as well.

Hi Suzanne - your tiles are beautiful! How could people NOT like them? Thanks for the instructions - I love how you do that :-)

How are you these days? The weather here is absolutely beautiful at present and we just had a day off work to commemorate our fallen Service men and women (It's called Anzac Day over here). It was a truly lovely day.

Now I hope you don;t mind, but I have 'tagged' you for some blogging fun - please visit my blog to find out what to do next?

Till next time!
