Mosaics

I have a little side hobby, mosaics. I find creating them relaxing, a little like puzzles (which I also recently re-discovered) and have been making them as gifts for a while now. These are some photos of my gifts and some of the things that inspire them.

Inspiration - tiny tiles around center and edges... love this. Also brown grout

Inspiration - texture, colors, sparkle.... from Etsy AkashicArt

Inspiration - I like the 3D elements here.

Inspiration - from Brett Campbel Mosaics. Love the sunset in the tiles.

Inspiration - the light captured in the tiles is great. The tiles are tiny. Love this. Not at all good enough to do this, but I can always aim high.

These are beautiful hand painted tiles by a Portuguese artist. I brought them home, mounted them and then created a border made out of broken plates around them.

    Hi. I used glue (special kind) - see this link - http://www.mosaicartsource.... Weldbond - then I use grout. FOr this one, I actually had a piece of peg board cut out and hung a wire through the holes before I grouted.

One of the first mosaics I ever made... with my sister Jill using broken tiles ... probably mexican found in Arizona.

small mexican tiles, surrounded by broken one, in painted gold flecked frame. Hangs in our house....

Dragon mosaic for Harry love....

BB's Mirror. It hangs in her office now.
