Today's Creative Blog is hosting a "get your CRAFT on!" for bloggers to see other crafted items out there in the blogosphere. So I thought it'd be fun to join in :)
I actually made this a little while back, but have been thinking about making another mosaic again (as soon as time allows!).
I took an old window from my cousin's house and painted it, then distressed it.
I then had a blast smashing lots of 25 cent or less mugs, plates, dishes (from Goodwill) to glue onto the panes of the window. I also bought some square tiles and rounded stones from Michael's to add a little bit of charm and iridescence to the window.
After that, I used grought to fill it all in...then I wiped off the excess and let it dry.
Jason and his dad helped wire a piece to the back so that it could hang (it's heavy!). And now it resides at the end of our hall. I just love all the colors! Isn't color great?
Mosaic is intimidating sounding, but so fun to do. I've also done a table and now I want to do a picture frame and/or mirror. I'll let you know how it goes ;)
