Finally starting a project!

Posted by gcpommom (My Page) on

I feel silly submitting this so early on, and it doesn't look like much yet, but I'm excited to finally be working on something!

I really like this green color, but I ran out and no one carries it anymore (I think it was called artichoke green). So now I am pondering what other colors to use on this; I only have so much to choose from right now. So this is on hold until I order some more glass! But I am happy with how it looks so far.

It's my first project that isn't a flat surface; the only thing I've ever made was a table top, and that was using a grid, so this is new to me. I need to find a way to prop it up while I work on it so that I don't damage the pieces I've already glued down. Any suggestions?

Hi Judy, I know next to nothing about mosaic, but it looks like you have a great start. Can't wait to see what other colors you put on it.

I use a bowl with a towle in it to cushion it. I do this when I work on BB.Hope this helps. Very nice vase, to bad about running out the color.

I love what you've done so far!

How pretty, and I love your design. I find that placing a box on top of my Lazy Susan to hold things helps a lot. Only suggestion on other colors is to have high contrast so your beautiful design shows.

Thanks for the advice! Bowl and towel, got it!

I was considering a dark purple, but was worried it would be too contrast-y. Otherwise, I was also considering a medium amber glass. My SIL wants me to use blue, but I'm not sold on that idea. Decisions.....

Very nice start! LOVE your design! I'm partial to purple with green, maybe a nice lavendar wouldn't be such a bold contrast? I like the towel in a bowl idea, now why didn't I think of that? Thanks for sharing your pics...looking forward to seeing more!
