 This year in the Christmas draw on my side of the family I drew my brother's gf and my hub drew my bro. Sweet. Sweeter still we ( meaning my sister) decided this year we would make presents for each other. Rad. My brother and his sweetheart of a girlfriend took a trip to Hawaii this past year, so I decided I would make a mural of a beach scene for them. Complete with sunset and palm trees. I paint, but I really like to smash mirrors and make mosaic from them. To avoid 7 yrs bad luck, I use previously broken mirrors I scavenge from yard sales and alleys :p So I glue down the mirror, grout, then paint the grout. My husband made the frames, and the hanging mechanism. They were well received Smiley

Sorry for the objects in front of the mosaics, this is the only photo in existence!!! I hope this post works...

That is really beautiful! And what a wonderful way to re-con something that would otherwise be thrown out!
