Yes, more WIPs! I have probably half a dozen projects in various stages of progress right now. Here's what I've been working on today.
I acquired Laurie Mika's book on Mixed Media Mosaics a few of weeks ago and was utterly captivated, especially since the majority of the book focused on making tiles with polymer clay and using rubber stamps to embellish them. My two most favorite mediums!
I had two boxes already stained that would be perfect for mosaics on the lids, one box green and one blue, so I decided to go with a mosaic "theme" for each-- water for one and earth for the other. I pulled out my stamps and started making a big ol' pile of tiles. Now I am in the process of fitting everything together on the lids of these boxes.
So far, so good, and I'm really loving playing with the tiles. Its sort of like putting a puzzle together, only with this puzzle, if the pieces don't fit, you get to trim them until they do! I'm excited to finish them and I have tons of ideas for more mosaics. So fun!
