A mosaic welcome




This is my finished mosiac project ~ a welcome stepping stone.







I've really been enjoying playing around with mosaics lately. It's a nice break from painting. I have a stash of broken pottery, ceramics and glass that I keep in boxes and every now

and then I check what I have and decide what colors I need and will look for colored plates, etc. when I go to a thrift store. The rest is easy.....just break it and place it.

I used a mocha colored grout this time. Simple, just add water. Looks like chocolate ice cream.











I'm still lugging it around trying to find the perfect spot for it.








I love how it turned out and just might have to make another one.







Enjoy your day!

This really turned out beautifully and I like the spot you placed it in...sometimes I have wandered around the garden for quite a while trying to find just the right spot for a new ornament or plant.(-: I definately think you should make more! What do your two little friends think?
