I went through a ceramic tile-mosaic phase a few years back. I go through a lot of phases. It was fun; I would randomly break up tiles with a hammer and then rearrange the bits into pictures. Most of these tiles were freebies-leftovers from the local home improvement store. To get the proper yellowish skin tone, though, I had to go with some plates found at Target in the clearance section. The table I used cost something like 3 dollars at a secondhand store. It's not the greatest table because it has these little cubby things underneath, so it's not especially comfortable to sit at. But it makes a good surface to throw my keys, groceries, and other random stuff on in the kitchen.


I freehanded the characters while referencing a book.


I thought it would be appropriate for Milhouse to have the wine, and Lisa the Duff beer.


Grrrr


Excellent...



Thanks for looking,
Amy

Wow!  This looks amazing!  I love how the whole scene in set up.  I think Mr. Burns told Milhouse if he were to have any chance with Lisa, he would be to get her drunk.  Cheesy

F-ing awesome.  I was basically raised on the Simpsons, they taught me a surprisingly wide range of Jeopardy knowledge that use to this day.  I love your table.  I'm curious why you chose to include the characters you did.  Are they your favourites?  I like Patty and Selma myself.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Ha ha, believe it or not, I hadn't thought that far into the scenario. But I love your version of the story. I think that's what I'll go with if anyone ever asks.

Don't remember. It's easy to lose track of time while crafting...you guys know that.

  I'm curious why you chose to include the characters you did.  Are they your favourites?  I like Patty and Selma myself.

It's pretty tough to choose a favorite Simpsons character; they're all pretty awesome in their own right. I'd have to say Lisa and Mr. Burns are pretty high on my favorites list, and I threw the other two in just 'cause?
