I have been experimenting with tiles again. I printed this beloved photo on tissue paper. As you know, tissue paper is fragile so it is a tricky surface for printing. The solution? Trim and tape a segment of tissue paper (I used white tissue paper) to a base 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper that you can feed through your printer. I used Scotch tape to secure the tissue paper edges inside the margins of the copy paper or card stock. I haven’t had a paper jam yet!
Once printed, I trimmed the tissue paper (while still attached to the card stock). I used Mod Podge to attach the tissue paper to my tile. The paper folds into the tile edges extending the picture. I love the distressed image and the way the photo appears to be melted on the tile.
I also made a few more tiles using the traditional rub on transfer method. I treated each tile to a light spray of matte polyurethane.
