Greetings,
Remember this?

This is the back of a ceramic tile.
My orange tulip is now mounted. No, not on the ceramic tile. It's mounted to a piece of foam core board. I liked it but then remembered that I had some of these tiles.

This yellow "pastel paint-over" (thanks Lisa for the name) is now mounted to the ceramic tile. Isn't it fabulous that the tile is blue? Hubby suggested the word. I have still to figure out what to do with the back of the tile. Leave it plain or paint it or what?

And here is a purple tulip awaiting a word or words and to be mounted. I am not sure if I will use coreboard, a ceramic tile or maybe try a piece of wood this time. What do you all think?

Tomorrow is TGIF and my last day before a week long plus a day vacation. Woo Hoo! We'll be doing home repairs and cleaning out stuff. woo hoo.... And I plan to paint more tulips. I love my artists crayons (Thanks again Tristan) and am having so much fun with them. I want to try using book pages so that words will show through the flowers. And I want to make another mounting on a tile but cut the paper the exact size of the tile. Not sure though. I need to get a better roller. I used the side of a full bottle of glue and I don't think it worked as well as it could. I used pressure but not as much as I could have. I sprayed the painting with workable fixative first and used mod podge to glue down the painting and then put 2 coats over it. It's sealed pretty good. Do you think these should one day show up in my Etsy shop?

You all have a wonderful Friday. I'll be back here Sunday if not sooner.

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be You,

Tess

How bright and cheerful they are. What a good idea to put them on tile. I had a friend that painted her own tiles for her studio. :)Bea
