Laurie's book which is the inspiration for this class and my art. I bought this book last summer whne it came out and I've made a lot of tiles over the past summer, but wasn't sure what to do with these tiles, till now. Next weekend-I hope to be able to make tiles and tiles and more tiles. Take a class with Laurie if you ever get the chance!

Fantastic art class!!!
Spent this entire weekend at my favorite art/craft store- Absolutely Everything in Topsfield, Mass (http://www.absolutelyeverything.com/) taking a polymer clay tile class with Laurie Mika- http://www.mikaarts.com/. Wow- it was excellent. See my creation, its based on our visit to Westminster Cathedral in London. We made tiles out of polymer clay-I used a dark sage green and brown-and then we used mica powder, paint, gold leaf, beads and charms to create the final picture. It was not only fun, relaxing, educational but Laurie is an excellent teacher and really helpful.
