I saw a inspiring piece in the May/June 2009 issue of Somerset Studio. Look on page 34 for an extradordinairly beautiful piece by Jody E. Hansen. It really spoke to my heart.
She used Sculpey clay to make tiles for this mixed-media collage. I loved the possibilities that this piece offered. I haven't done much with Sculpey clay, so I thought that might be a fun challenge, as well.
Here is my first try at doing a Sculpey clay tile collage. I was happy with my first effort. I put it together on a 6" by 6" canvas. I found the most fun part was painting the tiles. I did most of the painting with my fingers.
I encourage you to try one of the collages too. If you share your piece on your blog, please post a link back to it here because I want to see!
