Mosaic for Try it on Tuesday

Good morning peeps.
It's altered week over at Try it on Tuesday sponsored by the lovely people at The Craft Barn who are offering a £15.00 voucher for the winner of the challenge. So lets alter something and use mosaic too...... well we want to stretch a bit don't we?
I altered a little wooden tray, you know the type that has lovely little embellishments in? I made my own mosaic tiles by using Crafty Individuals paper glued onto chipboard and stamped it with Family values from The Artistic Stamper before chopping it into little squares. The tray was coloured with inks and colour washes, stamped with a calligraphy stamp and flooded with a thin layer of glossy accents into which I laid the tiles. I coloured the corners with alcohol inks and glued to the tray.

 And then, when I'd finished it, I decide to add it to a notebook cover just for fun to give myself an interesting chunky book cover!
Hopefully I'll see you over at the Try it on Tuesday blog, there's loads more inspiration there; and don't forget the £15.00 Craft Barn voucher up for grabs!
Have fun today.
