Gypsy Tiles



Lisa issued a fun inchie challenge over on the Inchie Inklings blog, so of course, I had to give this one a shot. It was easy and fun to put this together. The only hard part is having the patience to line up all these tiles just right. I tried the ruler trick that Lisa shared, but it just confused me even more.

Here's the little trick that I figured out. By sheer luck, for my background I chose a patterned paper that had tiny little rows of dots on it. I used these dots to help me line up all my tiles. :-) So that's my tip for the day - if you want to try this sketch, be sure to pick a background paper that has rows of something (lines, dots, words, etc...) to help you line up all the inchie tiles.

I hope you have a wonderful week!
