First and foremost, I would like to give credit to the following instructable for inspiring this project:

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-unique-tile-picture-for-less-than-3/

This project will take images and transform them into a one of a kind recycled tile art work.  This is a gift for my mom for Christmas.  There is also a picture of one I made for my brother a few years ago (he is a pilot).

This looks great!
What type of printer did you use?
Ink jet or laser?
Very cool. I love pictures but I have so many in plain frames that I sometimes forget other ways of showing them off. Thank you for the neat idea!
