1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Photo tile coasters on: April 27, 2010 12:37:42 PM
Thanks guys! I printed the pictures on iron on transfers. Coated the front of the iron on transfer with 12 coats of acrylic matte spray. This really isn't as time consuming as it sounds, b/c the spray can dry in 2 minutes. So about every 2 minutes I would apply another coat. Then you let the pictures set for 24 hours. I cleaned the tiles off and let them dry. I then Cut the pictures to size and slowly and carefully pulled the paper backing off of the picture. This is the hard part as the transfer is very delicate and prone to ripping. I did have a couple tears in mine. Then I mod podged the tiles and applied the image, and then coated the top with mod podge. I then reapplied mod podge several times, and then once dry I painted the sides, added cork board to the bottom and sealed the tiles. One problem I have found is that I have small air bubbles under the image, even after smoothing the image when applying it to the tile. I am starting to wonder if it is from the actual tile itself because they are stone and have little holes in them. I think once applying the image the image creates air pockets over the holes in the tile. If anyone makes some please post. I would love to see them!

These are some photo tile coasters I made for my sister-in-law as a house warming gift. I haven't put the cork backing on yet, because they are still drying. But I just wanted to post and see what anyone thought. C&C welcome. Thanks!

I love these pillow cases! I was wanting to purchase some, but I didn't see paying $45 for 2 pillow cases. So I am glad that you found a way to make them! I might have to try to make some now too.

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Necklace and bracelet I made for my wedding on: October 25, 2009 09:17:22 AM
This is a necklace and bracelet I made for my wedding. I found a necklace I loved and wanted but we had just bought a house and were getting married and just thought it was too much, so I decided to try to make one like it. Once I completed that I decided to make a matching bracelet. And I just made the bracelet where I could just slide it on. Sorry the pictures are not good quality. I tried to get a close up of the detail and it just made the pictures fuzzy, then I tried to move back a little and then you just can't see much of the detail.

Action shots:

This is a picture where you can see both of them on, not well though
