Sara Naumann Tile Tutorial

As I promised I am back again tonight with another full tutorial of one of the projects I made for PaperArtsy Sara Naumann stamp launch on Monday evening. Tonight I am using this set:
So here is how I made my little board positive affirmation tile.
1. I cut 9 cm square piece of PaperArtsy grey-white board. Painted with two coats of Snowflake Fresco paint and also did some stamping using Black Archival ink. Then came a coat of Gloss Glaze, which I stamped into using three of the images from the new stamp set.

2. Once completely dry I added a layer of Zesty Zing Fresco paint, left for about 30 seconds to start drying and the wiped back with tissue/baby wipe. Translucent paints work best as you don't loose any of the slight gloss and any background images.

3. I pulled my card together by playing with 3rd and 4th generation ink and stamping using quote. As I love my background so much cut out the quote so as not to cover my tile up. Also painted and stamped some little Prima wooden flowers. Made by own leaves my painting smoothy card with Hey Pesto and doing some more stamping. I coated all my embellishments and the quote with a thin layer of Gloss Glaze. The little resin bird was pastel pink but I covered it with a coat of Little Black Dress Fresco paint to match the colour palette.

My finished positive affirmation tile stood on a little wooden mini easel.

All new release stamps are now available from your favourite PaperArtsy retailer.
I do hope you will hop over to the PaperArtsy blog to see more fabulous launches this week they go right through until Sunday 31st August.


  1. Great project and thanks so much for the tutorial on how it was made. I would never have thought of the gloss glaze and paints in top- really stunning effect x

  2. A really creative project - fab images and colours too


  3. I've made my own little tile/card inspired (copied more like!) from your tute! Nowhere near as good but I enjoyed it. I love the colours you have used and the shininess of the gloss glaze.


Thank you for your lovely comments. X
