.:Feature Friday - Little Miss Crafty Pants:.

I'm so excited to introduce Erika to you all today! I'm sure some of you already 'know' her from the blogging land. She is super creative and a really fun gal, so enjoy this great tutorial from her!

Hello all you fabulous fans of Sumo!

I'm so excited to be the guest blogger for today!!
My name is Erika from Miss Crafty Pants (formerly know as Little Miss Crafty Pants.)

I've recently up and moved my blog, so come on by to take a peek around. I'd love to have you!
*I will be having a few drawings coming up soon for all my followers, so be sure to add your name to the list.

Now on to my Tutorial!!!!

*My project I did using a digital scrapbooking kit

Tile Projects Included in your download

Items Needed:
6" x 8" Tile (found at Home Depot or Lowes for a few bucks)
Pre-Printed digital scrapbooked picture
(Or you can use a picture and regular scrapbooking paper)
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush

Acrylic Texturing Gel
Plastic Grocery Bag

Step 1: Hopefully you're familiar with a photo editing program to use the download. Just simply drag and drop your picture behind the pre-made template included in the download. It was made to fit a 8 x 6 tile. Then you can drag and drop your photo to a 8 x 10 template for printing.

Step 2: Print your photo
(I print mine at Sams club. The colors have less of a chance of bleeding when adding the mod podge when using professional photo paper.)

{ If using photo and scrapbooking paper, gather supplies.}

Step 3: Trim excess photo paper to fit 8 x 6 tile.

Step 4: Quickly brush mod podge onto the tile. Firmly press your picture onto the tile. Let it dry.
{If it bubbles, wait a few minutes then press the picture down}

Step 5: Once the photo tile is dry sand the excess paper off the edges. I LOVE the look it gives. It looks as though the picture is flush with the tile.

{Idea: add distressing ink around the edges for an antiqued look}
Dip a small corner of a crumpled plastic bag into the Acrylic Texturing Gel. Dab the gel onto the tile until you get the desired look. Let dry overnight.

Thanks for having me Miss Sumo!
