I created this project using 1.5" square pieces of wood.  I then created the drawings on paper, glued them onto the wood pieces, and then covered the drawings in UTEE embossing powder.  This gave them the "heavy lacquered tile" look.  

I then found a frame with a slight recess - almost a shadow box, and it worked out to be exactly the same depth as the thickness of my wood pieces!  I painted the inside of the frame black, and glued my tile pieces into the frame with wood glue.

Thank you to everyone who has commented about this project! It was so fun to make, and I am thrilled with the feedback that I have received from all of you!

I never knew all their songs and don't recognize some of these. The Beatles were so prolific it was hard to keep up back then. Thanks for posting the titles.

This is wonderful and you should be very very proud of it. Aren't the Beatles wonderful?

What a fun project, Nicki! I'm so glad you shared it with us. "Bang, bang! Maxwells' silver hammer came down on his head" I'd forgotten that song! Yhanks for the memories of an old boyfried who was obsessed with the Beatles.

This was a wonderful project you did.
My daughter (who is just 18) is Beatles crazy. I showed her your piece and she guessed them all. I showed it to her today and she pointed out one mistake (sorry I don't mean it as a criticism, I would never have seen it) I had looked at your list with the paintings a couple of times and never caught it and she looked at it once and noticed you put down Drive My Car twice and that the second Drive My Car is actually Ticket to Ride.
She was only able to pick this out because your illustrations are so fabulous! :D

Thanks for pointing out my typing error! I have made the correction on my list...

Glad your daughter liked my piece!
