Finished the letters today. Suggestions for fill in would be a help. I have toyed with lavender. But am having a block or senior moment or something. Right now just have the mat backing behind glass.

Kathy, I really like how your words POP off the page. I'll let one of the great ones give you an idea on grout color. LOL, but this turned out great, good cutting.

Should I do a background in glass before grouting? What color would go with pink. As far as gaouting color, I like black, but not sure on this one.

I just want you to know that I read your post and wish I felt confident enough to give you a studied opinion. But given that, I would think black would be striking and not overwelming or take away from the thought at all. It would really make the letters stand out beautifully.

I really like your mosaic. I like the shape of the letters and the message is awesome also. How about a dark blue background. I have seen some that is almost black that might look nice.

How pretty! A white background (irridescent maybe?) with black grout would look really cool! The possibilities are endless, you'll take out your glass, lay it next to it, study it and you'll find the perfect combo.

As it appears now on the black background, it's beautiful - good job w/lettering. Dark green is a good contrast to pink also.
