Mosaic ~ The Journey

Finished TODAY ~ 5in x 5in Mosaic!

I am current participating in a Mosaic Class at the Chicago School of Mosaic


This is my first project ~ finished today… though the grout is still drying the current color will be maintained when dried completely.


This process was so very fun and gave me an opportunity to work in a scale (6in x 6in) that is so much smaller than I have this month. It was a great learning tool to remind me to maintain flexibility in my approach!


…and this morning I started a new piece ~ so more pictures will follow soon!
