MOSAIC

I finally got around to finishing my mosaic piece, just need to paint around the edges and it's all done. Couldn't resist posting a photo of it though as proof that my creative mojo has returned. I really enjoyed working on this piece and it reminded me how much I love this art form.

It's not a great photo as the blue is not showing true and it looks wonky, when it is in fact a perfect rectangle. I am thinking of adding another 2 pieces either side, continuing with the circle pattern. This would require many more hours of being absorbed in the wonderful world of mosaic, but in reality I'm not sure I'd be able to find the time. We will see... X

Very, very nice mosaic. I love it. I think I may just have to copy it so you had better copyright it quick! I really, really like it.

By the way you can put a layer of grout around the edge of the mosaic. Have your sponge wetter than when you remove the grout from the top. Really gently wipe around the edges so as not to remove the grout. Then you wont have to paint the edge - yeah! Painted edges do look nice but are not as hard wearing if you want to use it outside plus it is one less step - and that has to be a good thing with lickle kids around!

ohh, very lovely! You are so talented Julie, it look slike such a fiddly, tricky thing to do.

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
