It has been 4 years since I last did mosaic but I was pleased to discover that it was just like riding a bike, once you've learnt you don't forget!
I have been lugging big flooring tiles around that I scored free when I was doing a lot of mosaic's. They are old samples for discontinued lines that would have normally have been thrown out. Each time we shift I get hassled for being such a hoarder! I just knew I would use them eventually! I really enjoyed spending the time doing mosaic again and it's not really all that far fetched from collage or as my son said "puzzles, except you make the pieces" Clever boy :)
I have been inspired by a sort of Tibet, Mediterranean style mixed with a bit of Lisa! Since this pic I have actually done another 'shack' and started on a 3rd. I tidied the yellow door a bit better too. My hands ache already being out of practise but there is something quite addictive about mosaic! Loosing time and gaining satisfication adding 'just' one more piece...
Will post more pics later showing the progress of the mosaic!
