In the recent IYP swap I asked alteredmommy to be my partner, and she agreed. Smiley

Made this mosaic house number for her from glass on tile to withstand the harsh weather where she lives. She asked for yellows and oranges with a dark color for the number.

This as it turns out is the last mosaic I will be doing. For different reasons decided I'm selling all my equipment and supplies. Very glad it will go to another Craftster member. Smiley

This was such a nice useful project as well as being lovely!

The colors and the way you lined up the tiles zig-zaggy makes for good design!  Love seeing part of the process.

While I am sorry that you are no longer do this type of craft, I know you will find another way to express your creativity.

Keep on crafting,,,love your work!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

This is magnificent! While I am sad to hear you're giving up mosaic, I am glad you have gone out on a high note and know you will find even more ways to express your artistic and creative nature.

I love this! How did you make the 9? Sorry it's the end of the mosaic run (at least for now), but I'm looking forward to seeing where your next crafty adventure takes you.
