Day 358 – Cloudy Day

On day two of my project I created white fluffy clouds in a blue sky.  Tonight I created gray clouds with a little blue sky because it’s been so rainy this week. I love the way there will be dark storm clouds and then when I look just beyond the darkness there’s blue sky.

I’m still not really happy with the way my mosaic clouds look.  I think glass is just too hard for clouds.

Day 357 – Spiral Doodle

Today starts the last week of this year-long project.  I’m so proud of myself for keeping with my commitment and finishing what I started out to do.

I looked back at the designs I created the first week of the project and decided to use those designs as a starting point for this week.  I’m going to add a twist to the designs I created almost a year ago.

Day 1 was a spiral.  I took that idea and turned it into lots of spirals.  This design is similar to a lot of my doodles.

Day 356 – Grouting Week 51

I grouted all the mosaics for the week with white grout then I had fun painting the grout.  It’s much easier than coloring the grout and using multiple colors on one piece.  I’m excited to explore this more.

Day 355 – Earth

A friend told me that pictures were being taken of the earth from Saturn today. Today’s mosaic is my impression of how the earth looks like from way up in space

Day 354 – Waves

I created this mosaic on Friday and was letting it dry before I posted it but I fell asleep.
It’s been so hot here in Philadelphia that being near water is the best place to be to stay cool.  There’s no water near here so I can only imagine.

Day 353 – Almost Symmetrical

I’m not sure why I tried to create a symmetrical design when I started with a base that wasn’t quite square and I used glass that was not all exactly the same size.  Oh well, I had fun and I love the colors.

Day 352 – Cardinal Tile

Tonight I used a tile that I created in mosaic class.  I painted the tile with tempera paints instead of glazing it.  Then I broke it up to make the mosaic.
