Tile Picture

My Mother-in-law told all us kids that she wanted homemade gifts this year. When I heard that I actually got excited, but my SILs weren't too happy about that. I love to find new crafts to make and especially crafts that I can give away! Anyways, I found my inspiration for this idea HERE. I went through my in-laws wedding album and found a few pictures that I liked and scanned them into my computer. I have a program that I used to fix the image and make them sepia. I was just going to use the big picture, but because it was a scanned image the picture turned out fuzzy. So I decided to add the other two pictures and a saying. I really like how it turned out. I purchased a 12X12 tile from Home Depot, or Lowe's (I really can't remember which one) and printed off the picture. Then I cut the picture down so that it would fit the tile, then I put a layer of Mod Podge on the tile, put the tile on, then put another layer of Mod Podge on. I think I even added one more layer just to be safe. I let it dray, and voila, you have a beautiful picture that you can put anywhere in your house!
