its my first ever attempt with mosaic i just fell in love with some tiles in the craft store and had to find something to make with them Smiley so i bought one of their paper mache, horses and a few more different tiles.....and a tile cutter.......and a whole load of stuff that has nothing to do with mosaics lol .......   ;p

and after one failed attempt were all the tiles fell off as i tried using a silicone glue as advised on the packet.....and i had to start all over again clean the horse off completely and throw away a good portion of those lovely tiles Sad i staerted again with good old modge podge and it worked brilliantly...and i discovered

i absolutely love mosaic

i even brought some mini wooden mice today cos i want to make some tiny tiny mosaics.

so without further ado here is (101 pics of) my little mosaic horse...who needs a name....









and with a few left over tiles i mosaic'd this mini clip board Cheesy

Great job! I have a bunch of old ceramic plates I've been saving to do mosaics with. You might have just inspired me to get going on that! Smiley
