Mosaic project

tbledsaw(5)June 28, 2011

Today via Craigslist I obtained 9 boxes full of brand new ceramic tiles for FREE!! White in 2 styles, peach, cream, cream with mottling, black, and burgundy. I was hoping for more primary colors, but beggars can't be choosers LOL. I saw these on Flickr and they've always stuck with me as a want-to-do-project. Of course my colors aren't as stellar, but I think I can make do with it :o)

If you go to the stained glass and mosaics forum Slowmedown will tell you how to do these lovely mosaic pieces even how to build the bases. Great score. Wonderful projects.

I wish I could get started on mosaics. I have boxes full of stained glass that was given to me a few years ago. Just can't seem to get enough confidence or time.
Which brings me to another subject. I'm spending way to much time on the computer instead of working on crafts!
