painted inchie mosaic greeting card

here's another example of how to make use of leftover acrylic paints (and texture mediums too) instead of tossing out those little puddles. brush them on to thick watercolor paper, then punch out inchies to create a mosaic.

i liked the idea of two layers of inchie tiles - the bottom layer was glued on symmetrically. the backer fabric is white cotton that was handpainted with an ink waterwash and then salt-printed.

then i edged the next group of tiles with a black marker and placed them in an abstract pattern on top.

i love a square card that opens top to bottom too, don't you?
