Stone Soup Story Tiles

 What I did:

1.  Painted the illustrations on watercolor paper using acrylic paints.  See previous post below.  

2.  Took photos of the paintings with my iPhone.

3.  Used Microsoft word tables to make the 2″ tile size pictures.

4. Sent the page to local quick copy center. 

5. Cut out the pics. Could just cut squares for younger folks.  But I carefully cut out closely around the objects. 

6. Decoupaged using very thin layer of mod podge. Put a few additional costs of mod podge. Here’s a close up:  

 

 

These tiles will fit very well in the wipee box from the dollar store. The printed story is my version adapted from a very old fairytale I found online.

   
     

STONE SOUP STORY STONES AND ART FOR BOOK

I have had such joy creating story stones. Actually I painted the stones before painting the large paintings. 

Stone Soup is s story of bringing together the little of what you have to help many.
