Mosaic Tablets


I had fun today, thanks to the snow keeping me home, making these mini tablets. Don't know quite what they are but they evolved from a piece of card created by gluing together  strips of coloured and stamped papers. I then cut the strips across the length and reformed them into mosaic like pieces. When I cut the card into above pieces, the bits started falling off. Never trust glue sticks!! I then decided to cover them in UTEE as a means of holding together all the precious bits, and added accent beads or foil for a bit of bling. Some of the beads I made with UTEE.
I suppose they might end up as key fobs, pendants or tags on 3D items, who knows?

Serendipity! I love it when you discover something good by accident :) They look fab and I bet they're so much nicer in real life.

Wonder if we'll be the only ones there on Saturday, lol? See you then, all being well.

I know what you mean about gluesticks - lol. These are beautiful and so vibrant, especially when everything outside is so white.

They're beautiful, lovely patchwork of colours and patterns. I've tried that trick with the UTEE also for holding everything together - must remember to make any holes first though!
