Update on Georgie

Final post for tonight, then bed. Just a quick update on Georgie. I’ve done as much as I can on Georgie until I go to the city tomorrow and get the glass I need. I’ve had fun making her. Being told to use Georgie’s colouring, but add me in there, I’d bought some beautiful tiles... Continue Reading →

Hummingbirds

After having done a few dragonflies in my designs, I wanted to try something different, and was inspired by Clare from Dreams and Adventures at Cosy Cottage and her post, Masons Wood, where she tells of a hummingbird she saw on one of her walks. I drew up my template then traced the final picture... Continue Reading →

Dragonfly Swirl

This mosaic has been surprising to make in a number of ways, and I can’t help giggling on the inside when I think about it. Despite the base being 40cm (just under 16”), I drew my basic design on an A4 sheet of paper, thinking it’d be easy enough to then hand draw a scaled... Continue Reading →

Making ‘Pond Life’

‘Pond Life’ is the second commissioned mosaic for Rory from A Guy Called Bloke, with the Rainbow Dragonfly being the first. The brief for this mosaic was one or two dragonflies over a pond making it more life like, 12” by 18”, and I was more than happy to take up the challenge. I say... Continue Reading →

Rory has been a big supporter of mine since the inception of my blogging days, so it’s been a real privilege being asked to create not just one, but two... Continue Reading →

Star Bright

"Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight." I’ve had this star shaped base from when I first started mosaics, and seeing the finished mosaic makes me think of how much I’ve learned and how much my comfort zone has... Continue Reading →

Spectrum – For Sale

I'm really pleased with how Spectrum has turned out, although I ended up making some changes to the original outline design to make it my own. I'm enjoying making these abstract pieces that are bright and colourful and full of life. I'm becoming more comfortable with using bold colours and think I've found my favourite...

Spectrum

I’ve begun work on my next mosaic, ‘Spectrum’. The inspiration for this one has come from Julie Edmunds ‘Head Dress’. I admire Julie’s colourful work and aspire one day to have that talent with use of colour. I do love using bold, vibrant colours and varied tesserae types, and have just had some regalia glass...
