that is so awesomely gorgeous!  i've always wanted to try mosaics, but it seems like a lot to have to cut tiles and mix grout...  this way is just as pretty and much much easier!  thank you so much for sharing your technique!
Oh same here abotu the tiles and grout, also they are so expensive!, that's why I posted how to do it in hopes that someone will try it and post it here as well. Good luck to every one who will try this! Grin

Hooray! You have inspired me!!! I have been pretending I want to paint for a while now, every time I go with my husband to Home Depot I go to the paint section and grab pretty colors.  Cheesy And until now I didn't know what I would actually do with them. Thanks so much for posting this!

that's delightful Cheesy  I took a color theory class last year and had to do a self portrait out of paint chips, it was quite interesting, but I think your dragonflies are much nicer Cheesy
