Am really enjoying the rock mosaics - takes some fiddling around to get the desired effect though.

Silva, you were certainly right about stepping back and looking at projects with a critical eye - I can't believe all the changes I made to a relatively simple project.

It's a great start ! Love the plates. Be careful with plastic beads - some of them will fade in the outdoors.

I hope you post a finished picture !

That is really pretty. I also love the china added to the mix.

Thanks, ladies! I want to get some more done and grout them all at the same time. It's such a messy process. Susan

What Crafty said. I LOVE the dish shards. Chris Emmert on Flickr has inspired lots of people to mosaic rocks. Wish I could find some beautiful rocks, but they're too expensive here.

GET OUT OF TOWN!!! That is GORGEOUS!!!! I have a couple of rocks I have been saving for rock painting...and now will have to find some to mosaic! I also had great plans to mosaic allllll of my garden cement borders...waaay too many! But now I really like the idea of doing random ones with a butterfly or bug of some sort...
