Got out my 'spray sealer' read the can three times, sprayed, noticed it was kind of white but didn't really think much about it. Then realized (after it dried) that I used white spray paint that had a sealer in it. I guess I just read sealer and thought I was all done.

So I had to use a bit of mineral spirits to get the paint off and it worked. At least I didn't ruin the tiles. I do this all the time, get really crafting and stop paying attention to the details of things.

I actually kind of liked the white affect on the tiles, but it was too white. Had I not sprayed it over and over and over again, it probably woudl have worked with the white on!

Oh well, it all worked out in the end I guess.

Mary,
You gave me a good giggle!!! I sometimes do that when I am packaging items while watching a movie. I will seal them all up and realize I didn't put my contact info sticker on the back and INSIDE the packaging!
