Newbie with pics( I hope)

scootsmomJune 22, 2008

Hi! I have been lurking here for about a month, reading and looking at all of the beautiful work that ya'll do. Everyone is so talented. I have learned so much since I found this site. I discovered mosaics a couple of months ago after the office I worked at closed. I have since returned to work, and now I am so addicted that I don't want to work. I just want to play!!!! I have pictures of my first few projects. The 1st is my house number, then I did the flower pot, and then the magnolia tray. I have not experimented with colored grout yet, but I will on my next one. Now lets hope I can get the pics on here.

Have a great day!

Wow, Thank ya'll so much. After I did my first one, I was completely hooked. Now I look at everything and wonder how it will looked all decorated up. My hubby says that he is scared to sit still for too long, for fear I might mosaic him.
I have to say that my tray is my favorite. I cheated a bit with the edges. I bought the precut tiles at Lowes because they were the perfect colors. But I did peel them and attach them.LOL

Thank ya'll for all your comments. I look forward to getting to know you all and learning new tricks.

Also, I don't know how the pictures got small. They were huge when I posted them.
Have a great day!
