I don't really have much to share this week as it's still been a bit slow here In The Studio.
I grouted 2 letters of the custom order. Cleaning these are really time-consuming.
I am very pleased with the results so far. There are a few spots that will need grout touch-ups. That's the hard part with using tesserae in different thicknesses. It's always a bit challenging. But I really do love the results.
And in other news ... I was the winner of a $25 gift certificate contest for September through Gemini Moon Designs by Jeanine Molnar
recently. I picked out this awesome incense burner and some incense
which arrived in record time.
I've been a big fan of her work and of the person behind the business
for many, many years. She is very inspirational and one of the first
mosaic artists I found so many years ago that "spoke" to me through her
art. She rocks!!
I've written a blog post about her in the past when I used to feature shops. There is a possibility I will do that kind of post again next year. But in the meantime, check out her shop on Etsy for some serious drooling.
Meanwhile, I'm hoping to pick up a little steam soon and continue grouting. I have some new mosaics I want to make. I have a few ideas for some more serious art pieces, not just home decor items. I believe these will take months to work on, from start to finish. Once I get going on them, I'll share what I'm doing.
And the secret giftie I mentioned last week hasn't yet been gifted which means I can't yet share a photo. I'm going nuts, I have to say, because I LOVE to share!
Come back again to see all the latest updates.
