Photo Tile and Spray Paint

Do you have some old tiles laying around the house? Grab a photo, some spray paint, some tissue paper, mod podge/gel closs, stamps and some lumiere paints for some mEssY pLay!
First, go to a well ventilated area and spray paint the tile. I scratched into the paint while it was wet - a bit of doodling.

Let the tile dry overnight.

Then do a transfer of your image (photo or any image you like) using mod podge or golden gel gloss medium. Splodge a lot on the tile and on the photo, smooth it down (you can use a brayer, but I used my hands), and leave it overnight to dry.

Gently rub the photo off with water. Don't worry if it leaves a few holes - just adds to the distressed look. Next, I used a Sakura souffle pen to add some swirls and add to my doodling.

Next, I added tissue paper across the middle and corners to give the piece some depth.

I also stamped onto tissue paper (Stampers Anonymous, Tim Holtz - "Memories") and embossed it. I then glued this over the tissue paper on the tile.

Next I added lumiere paints.

That finishes off the tile. :0) And here are some other pics of spray paint images, negatives (reversing the sprayed pieces onto card), and ideas for patterns for general MeSsY pLaY!
