I love to visit my creative side. Usually I operate with my left brain side and tend to rely on structure and routine. I approach my day with a plan and get through it with logical problem solving and a back up plan. Sometimes, though, I take a hiatus and embrace the intuitive, artistic realm. Smart Art subscription boxes give me a creative outlet with some guidance!
I received a Smart Art box filled with everything I would need to make mosaic tile coasters. This unique project came complete with all of the supplies I needed and an easy-to-follow pamphlet that outlined the process step by step. This really helps me. Left alone with an idea and a bunch of different art supplies…I’m at a loss as to how to achieve the end result and can end up really disappointed. The Smart Art box offers a little bit of hand holding while giving you free artistic reign.
The directions are simple. The materials you need are all included (with the exception of the suggested petroleum jelly which I thought was pretty reasonable to assume I had on hand). Coming up with my own design (with some help from little hands) was fun and really made this craft more personal.
Simply placing the pretty glass tiles in any design of my choosing gave me an easy way to get the creative juices flowing. Pouring the easy to make cement on was an easy task too (and not even that messy).
After just an hour of drying time, the cement was dry and ready to pop out of the mold. I did have to share and all 3 of my girls (ages 6, 9, and 12) ended up making their own mosaic tile coasters. This was a fun art project that I enjoyed and so did the kids.
