After a very long time I have finally done a new mosaic. Nothing earth shattering, but it sure felt good to mess with the glue and grout again. Smiley

Used wine corks for the message board, old blue beach themed china, seashells and old tiles to create the mosaic. It was a lot of fun to incorporate all the items into the beach themed message board. Even the lovely blue china has seashells on it. Also added two hooks for key rings, and two pushpins with seashells glued to them. The mosaic has a great 3D effect so it is even beautiful from the side view.

I used to bartend, I should have kept more corks! I only have a couple, and have been trying to figure out what to do with them. This is such a great idea! The key hooks are handy, too.

Oh goodness, this is awesome! I love the mix of cork and ceramic. I would have never thought to use cork in a mosaic.

If I had a beach house, I would *need* this hanging by the door!

Love the mix of materials!  The blue is perfect for a beach theme...and the shells really make nice push pins!
