Altered Art

Ceramic Tile Pendant

This pendant is made from a ceramic tile purchased from Home Depot in the flooring department. I attached a photo turn for the bail and put a piece of scrapbook paper on the back to cover up the glue and present a more finished appearance. The design is a stamp that I found on the internet. I had to stretch it to fit the tile but it still looks good. I attached the paper to the tile with Modge Podge. I also sealed the design with two layers of Modge Podge. It was a lot of fun to make and I plan on making more with the other 20 tiles that came in the package.

I am entering this altered tile into the "altered project" challenge on the Dutch Dare Challenge site.

There are also two "anything goes" challenges that I will be entering the tile pendant in:  Woodware USA Clear Stamps and Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge.

I always encourage you to look at the other clever creations that have been submitted by the design teams and other crafters.
