That is wonderful. I so want to do one for each of my kids and grandkids but I am just chicken to start!
What is that background?

RE: 'Christopher' mosaic

texasfern, the background is Van Gogh glass. I like it because it seems to give the piece depth. I am fortunate to have a glass shop nearby and many times he has some really nice glass in the "scrap" pile for $1.50/lb. Unfortunately, this time he didn't have the color I wanted in the scrap pile, bought 2 sq ft of it, so I have some left for another time.
