Tex Tiles

The crusade this month for the GPP Street Team is Grid Lock.


This prompted me to complete an outstanding inchie project. The inchies were created using a brochure from Boden of their Spring Collection. The one inch squares were punched out of the brochure using a paper punch, then adhered to mountboard bases.


All the edges were sanded. The lime green tiles were coated with Crackle Accents (Ranger) to add texture. The red tiles were left plain.


The tiles were glued into my art journal & an appropriate ribbon & button tab added.



Journalling was added to the final inchie tile, Journey through Spring,
with details of the challenge hidden inside.

  2. Daisy - thanks for coming to play!! Love your grid!! Wow, what a lot of work going into each piece but it was well worth it for such a cool page. Thanks for spelling out all the details - the sanding and the crackle accents. AND DOUBLE WOW for the very cool fold-out square at the end. Very clever!!!!

  16. Thanks for sharing how you made the pages - I like this just as much as seeing the final result.

    The end inchie with the fold out journalling is a great idea. The butterflies are stunning too, like you left your book open and they landed when you were away from your table.
