Finished mosaics


Just want to show you all my finished mosaics.   This is just a simple glass tile collage, tiles found at a decorator shop on clearance. 

This one I call my “ugly butterfly mosaic”.   Lots of learning experience included in this one:  symetry and handcut glass is challenging, should have used a grout closer to the background…the butterfly would have popped then, can’t rush when doing the background tiles, and shifted tiles are impossible to remove when dry. 

The nasturiums have a similiar background, but for some reason the charcoal grout works.  Perhaps, because there is no black or brown glass in the composition. 

The purple coneflower with butterfly makes me happy, imperfections and all:
