  1. While I like the houses too, I absolutely love the tree! It's SO cool! Are these 3 1/2 square tiles? There is so much detail I'm guessing these are bigger?

    1. Hi Betsy, I'm a bit partial to the tree too! These are all 3.5" tiles, mounted on 5" canvas.

  4. I really like these tiles, and like everyone else, I like the tree. I think it's the Bunzo that does it.

    1. Thanks J L! For me I think it's the dark on one side and light on the other, the moonlit effect.

  5. Wow. This is my most favorite effect yet! You just get better and better Margaret girl! How do you adhere the tiles to canvas? I love that idea.

    1. Thanks Anne. I use acrylic matte medium as 'glue' and an acrylic matte varnish over everything.
