Continuing the turtle theme (see my post of 13 March 2019), today I am sharing a photo of a mosaic I made a few years ago of a turtle (in abstract). I love bold colours and, in winter, when my garden is devoid of colour, my colourful mosaics are sure to make me smile.

Dear readers and fairy enthusiasts, a while ago I decided to make a mosaic of a fairy. Every garden needs a fairy, right? I had never made a mosaic of a human-like form before, so I expected it to be quite challenging. And indeed, it was. It turns out it is difficult to mosaic a tiny face, all of 2sq centimetres, and I made rather a mess of it. Nevertheless, as imperfect as it was, my friend decided she would buy it for her grand-daughter. Read more
Have you ever stood in front of a jewelry shop and admired all the beautiful gems on display but not given a second thought to the effort, skill, design and creativity that has gone into making such beautiful pieces? I know I have. Read more
I’ve been inspecting photos for my forthcoming October Changing Seasons post. What this has revealed is that October has been busy, busy, busy. Aggghhh. No wonder I am exhausted. So I am giving you an off-the-shelf post today, My Mondrian Madness. I love the gleam and sparkle of ceramic tiles. They cannot be beaten for lustre. Here it is. Read more
I don’t suppose I’ve told you that I love my little birds? Here is my latest mosaic project. This weekend, I plan to bestow this gift on my friends, who’ve just bought their first house. I hope they like it. Read more
I might have suggested to a few people that I’ve done artworks (mosaics) of some Aussie birds and promised to post some photos of them. Lately though, I have been concentrating on dog mosaics, but I find myself returning to birds time and again. I have tremendous admiration for people who can photograph birds well, because I find it incredibly difficult to take a decent photo of my mosaics. They glitter and sparkle at all angles, hence it is virtually impossible to take a photo without being blinded by reflection. I love big bold colour, so I guess a little sparkle goes with the territory. Read more
I thought I would join in a photo challenge from Debbie at Travel with Intent. The theme is White. My participation is inspired by Brian at Bushboys World. Brian has posted some photos of beautiful white pelicans. So I thought I would post a photo of a pelican too. But this one is not real. It is a mosaic piece I made a number of years ago.
Unfortunately, I’ve almost exhausted my supply of the lovely pink tile and there are no more to be found.
