School's Out For the Summer...

...and that means I can now take time to play! Yippee! This is much more pleasant now that we installed a window air conditioner. It's supposed to be over 100 tomorrow! My "studio" stays nice and cool. Turn on the radio and I snip, clip, and mosaic away!

These two are just a couple in a series that I am doing for fun/learning curve. I'm playing with vitreous as well as broken china. They are quick, easy, and make me smile. The backing is some leftover tile backer board from the remodeling project I saved from the dump. I will probably do some house numbers using this too.

The following pics are of the birdhouse work in progress. I will likely grout it tomorrow with the same light dusky/dirty pink I used on the yellow/purple vitreous. I'm critical of this one. I am not overjoyed with the front but am not willing to rip it out and start over. I started there and I should know better. Always start on the back! Oh, well.
