This is a present for my friend's birthday. Her name is Sophia. I wanted to do something inexpensive and creative and so I went to Michaels planning to get a "S" that I could cover in a great fabric for her to hang on her wall, but instead came up with making a mosaic using colors from her newly decorated room. It is blue and beachy. I bought some sea glass, little mirrors, and the "S." The seashells are from my own personal collection, as are the little jewels.

She seemed to really like it so I am pleased.

Comments would be appreciated. Sorry for the low quality of the photos. They are from my phone.

This is a really neat way to use those wooden letters! I have an S myself that I painted with a tree pattern, so this caught my eye. I think it's a really nice variation of the decorative lettering. Good job!

Cute idea! I have recently discovered mosaics, too . . . fun to do!  And the sea glass is really pretty.
