Welcome - Altered Tile

Welcome back! Today I have another wonderful project using Unique Laser Designs wood embellishments. Lots of color and texture come together to create a unique home decor project. For this project, I used a 6x6 stone tile as my based.

To start, I painted the entire surface of the stone with a tinted glaze. Once the glaze was dry, I added different colors of ink to give a marbled effect.

Next, I used a stencil and modeling paste to add a layer of texture to the tile.  While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled it with glitter.  Every project must have a bit of sparkle.

Once the modeling paste is dry, I added some ink to give the tile more color.

Now on to the embellishments.  I used a mixture of alcohol inks, Stickles, and dimensional paint to add color to my ULD embellishments.

Now it's just a matter of pulling everything together.  I added a couple strips of washi tape to the bottom, adhered all of the wood embellishments, then layered on the flowers.

A wonderfully simply project with striking effect. Now I have something to display in my home to welcome guests.
