Home-made Coasters, oh so pretty!

Last month went by so quickly that I ran out of time to show you the pretty coasters we made the month before.

But while looking through my files I came across the pictures and decided today is the day to share!

The first one:

And the other one:

The tiles came from Lowe’s and were the glossy, very inexpensive ones Smile

Sealer was purchased at WalMart, the high Gloss kind!

How to:

- Gesso was painted onto Tiles with foam brush, let dry completely. One good layer should be enough. You want to make sure that no glossy surface will show.

- Make sure your black StazOn inkpad is moist, and re-ink between each tile if creating several ones

- Image was stamped on tiles, let dry completely

- Images were colored in using blender pen and ink refills. Make sure that you don't apply too much pressure so you won't rub off the Gesso accidentally.

- Once done and dry, take outside and apply 1 coat of sealer (sparingly), let dry. Go back and apply 1-2 more coats of sealer as needed.

- Add felt feet once completely dry
