My inspiration for this project was my childhood bedroom. I love the color mix of almond, persimmon and lemongrass, but you can decorate your boards any way you wish. You can't see it from the photographs, but the design elements "float" and cast shadows because they're on the top layer.
Design elements: I used various sizes of Colorado River Rock and squares that I cut into 1/4" pieces. The lines were 1/4" by 3". See the cutting example below.
- design elements (I glued only the tic tac toe lines)
Fuse to desired effect. I did a little beyond a tack fuse on these.
