magnets and sprays...

Hey everyone! 

This was last Saturday's tutorial over at the Creative Inspiration blog... We made tile magnets!
Click here to see the whole step-by-step tutorial (it's easy, I promise!)

Close up of one of the stone tiles... I love the texture!  I used Sky Blue CI paint and Staz-on ink with an Inkadinkado stamp. The are quick, easy, and inexpensive to make!  

Since I just moved into a new studio apartment, I made some for my fridge... Unfortunately, I decided to show my mom them... She decided they should be on HER fridge, and yes, that is where they are... Guess I need to make more (and not let them leave my house!) =)
*love ya Mom!*

 This one I didn't share on the CI blog... I thought I should share a little something more for those who have come here to visit me here. =)

For this tile, I simply "inked" up the stamp (another Inkadinkado) with CI Denium paint and stamped it. SUPER easy!  It reminds me of those blue willow plates (or whatever they are called...). You could do this with any color paint or ink (just make sure to use an ink that is made for non-porus surfaces). If you want a little added durability, coat with either a brush on or spray on sealer. 
*Warning: These are small, and they are magnets... keep away from small children and pets! Please!*

also...
Look what I got in the mail the other day...
there are 100 of these little mister bottles! (can you tell I like sprays? LOL!)  I'm so excited to fill them all up with colors and start playing!  First up will be all my distress inks, and all purpose inks. =)
