Day 99 – Mixing It Up

I was starting to feel that my mosaics were getting stale – same colors, same materials, same pictures.  Tonight I decided to try something new.  I went to Laurel Skye’s website for inspiration.  She makes mosaics that are inspired by tapestries.  I looked at some work by her students to get an idea of the materials they used and how they put their designs together.  My design isn’t reminiscent of a tapestry; it’s similar to the doodles I’m constantly creating.  Laurel does not use grout on her tapestry mosaics but I think I’m going to. 

You can probably tell there will be more to come with this design.  Sometimes 4 inches seems very small.
