At the risk of seeming like a one trick pony, I enjoyed making my rainbow table tiles so much that I wanted to do one more thing before I moved on.
A friend of mine is in the process of moving and she is currently hitting a lot of really depressing setbacks and snags along the way. She was also instrumental in helping donate catalogs for my table tiles so I wanted to make her something to cheer her up and to say thanks. She's really into photography and is starting to experiment in modling herself so I made her a picture frame she can hang in her new house!
I used the same technique as I did with my collage tiles only this time it was a lot easier because I could use magazines and not just catalogs!
I cut out small images for each color and glued them to the piece of mat that came with the picture frame. This time though instead of abruptly changing colors, I wanted to see if I could make a more blended appearance so between each color is a small section of transitional colors. This was a lot harder than I thought it would be because the mat is so much smaller than the paper I was previously using! Overall though I think it turned out really well and I am going to be giving it to her today when she comes over.
It can be hung this way too. Sorry it's a little blurry... Hope she likes it!
And for those of you who want more info on how I did this or are wondering "why the heck is this chick talking about table tiles?" here is a link to my previous project that inspired this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307597.0
