Nine more tiles found a home today.
In addition to their own recent history of graphite crayon and rubbing alcohol, matte medium and silicone catalyst tool, chalk pastels and workable fixative, the tiles also joined forces with more distant history.
To wit, I mounted them on handmade paper from a collection generated roughly 15 years ago when I used to amass all my junk mail, sort it by color, chop it into small pieces with my paper trimmer, churn all the pieces into pulp with water in a kitchen blender, use a mold and deckle to strain the water and shape the pulp into a wet 'sheet,' press the sheet onto a discarded piece of laminate counter top from a kitchen reno done in 1992, and let the sheet dry in the sweet heat of a summer day on our back deck.
Today, I next mounted the assembled-tiles-and-handmade-paper on a square cut from a magazine acquired at a museum we visited in Bennington, VT, in March this year.
Finally, I mounted the tiles, handmade paper, and magazine square on a wallpaper sample from a 2013 kitchen reno.
