Imagining a Mosaic Tile Pedestal

When the art appears in my mind, I glue it down.

No, I don’t know why – or how – it just happens.

It helps to have a variety of fun things to add.

And … if I play with the pieces long enough, it becomes a real thing.

Someday

Someday I might get around to another someday but for now I’m knee-deep into the decade old someday of designing the elusive online shop.

After following the directions and starting over a thousand times, it became crystal clear that patience gets easier the more you use it.

Three cheers to those who stick around long enough for the pieces to magically fall into place.

Happy Friday!

Heart Art

From one artist to another … a blast from the past.

Someone stenciled this discarded heart-shaped piece of wood.

It was one of those thrift store finds that immediately got my attention and did not end up in storage. I cut and glued vintage china shards, pink iridescent tile, red mirror tile, silver tapestry tile, green glass gems, a couple of red glass hearts, red lips and finished it off with charcoal grout.

It sold the day it was finished. No regrets, except not keeping it. 😉

Charcoal was a good choice.

Moving on … insert whooshing sound here. “D”
