Introducing myself to this lovely group :)

litsapizzaSeptember 3, 2008

Hello All! I've enjoyed lurking here for a couple of weeks, catching up on all the great advice and works of art. I admire all you share here :)

I'd like to share my FIRST mosaic. A box I made for my DH at the craft store I work at (birthday party entertainer). I never had a knack for art, always more of an appreciator and collector. Never dreamed I would get so hooked on Mosaics!

It may be amateurish, but wanted to share back and say thank you to all the helpfull artists here!

I wish I was exposed to creating mosaics years ago! It all makes sense now! I just notice how much mosaic inspired things I have collected in my home without realizing the pattern: mosaic tissue box, 3 candle votives, mosaic beaded charger, even the:

the shower curtain! LOL

Hello, and welcome! I agree with you 100%, this group is both very talented and very helpful! I've only done a couple of projects so far myself, and everyone here has been very helpful and offers tons of encouragement and advice.

I love your box, the guitar is awesome (my hubby plays bass) I think you did a very nice job on it, nice colors, it is a great first mosaic!

Welcome! Welcome! What a way to enter the group! That's a wonderful piece you did! Great.

Hang around here and you won't only be more addicted, you'll make a ton of great friends and have resources and information so close through all of them.

I love that you included the picture of the shower curtain. That's hardly a subliminal message to yourself. We're glad you finally saw what it was you loved and that you could do it too! Wonderful!
