In The Studio - Part One

It's been another busy week so far, filled with much mosaic making magic!

I finished putting tesserae on my little cardboard box house. I love it, truly, I do. It was fun to create and I will definitely be making another one.

Grouting will be a little challenging but it can be time-consuming no matter the shape of the mosaic. This one will take time to clean, I'm certain.

I finished the custom ordered scrap glass mosaic and it is just about ready to head out towards its new home.

I've been working on a new mosaic over the past few days. A new sun/moon mosaic! Yay!

This was once a discarded kitchen cabinet before I grabbed it at the dumpster near our apartment complex. Now it has a D-ring attached to the back and will be a beautiful piece of mosaic wall art once completed. Woo-hoo!

I have some new things going to the Storenvy shop once they are grouted and each piece gets their own photo session for the listings.

There's lots of grouting in my future but it's all worth it. I love how grout makes my mosaics come together. Grouting will probably happen over the upcoming weekend. Fun!!
