newbie, my latest turtle

Hi Everyone! I was very excited to find this forum last week. I was looking for some inspiration for some stepping stones I am going to make for our back yard and that's exactly what I found-MAJOR inspiration! You guys are awesome! I have been reading all the posts, catching myself up-so far I have read back to February. Here is a picture of my latest turltle. My DD (10 yo) designed it and picked the colors. I made it for her. I had originally grouted it in sandstone color grout but hated it, so, with your experience I painted it gold. I have also included a picture of a lamp shade I mosaiced a few years ago as I haven't seen one on the forum yet.

WELCOME to the forum: Terikat_MOM!!!!
Good job on the turtle and I love the lightfixture too!!! I did a wall sconce and a ceiling lightfixture and have plans for about 6 stained glass lampshades, (if I can ever pry myself away from mosaics and get back to copperfoil method stained glassing again!) I am usually the super caring one on this forum and always try to warn the newbies about mosaics and how it causes problems in your life so here is a link about the warning!!!

Here is a link that might be useful: WARNING!!!!

Welcome, TERIKAT. Awesome turtle! Painting the grout gold was the perfect choice! Your light is cool, too! I have one just like that and now I see it HAS to be mosaiced!
Slow recently made an awesome lamp. You could look through her albums for a few days and get super inspired! Do a search on this board for seashell lampshade and you'll see Klinger's beautiful shade and Meramaid's, too! And here is a stunning lamp set made by HRSG.

CALAM, thanks for that reminder...I laughed til I cried!

Awesome work. Yup...I agree...you have been "bitten" by the bug. Once you start there is no turning back.. everything you now look at will be seen with new eyes...and nothing is safe from being turned into a "work of art. Welcome to this marvelous and talented group of artists.
