How I made a wave mosaic

Hello everyone,
I've been making a new mosaic this week - a wave, using all sort of shades of blues and greens and greys - I have really got into the zone, and it's been great!
Here is a photo collage I made of the process I went through creating it ..



And this is the finished mosaic - 30cm x 20cm - and I'm rather pleased with it (you never know!!)
 It will be for sale on my Facebook Page tomorrow at 10am GMT Mon Feb 28th, if you are interested - a Facebook exclusive !

Thanks,
Felicity x

Just Mosaics and Google Adsense

Hello all!

Just a quick note to say that my blog has now been accepted for Google Adsense - so you will see adverts on my blog which Google choose, and if they get clicked, I earn a few pennies - every little helps, I say!

I hope this is alright with you all, and here is a little picture to say thank you for your support!

New mosaics using millefiori!

Ooooooo - I am very excited about using millefiori for the first time!  They are wonderful nuggets of colour and pattern - a thousand flowers!
I must be careful not to overuse them because they really do something to me - I know, I must get out more!  Unfortunately they are not cheap - having said that I have just found a good deal on Amazon, and already I am impatient for them to come!
Here is my first mosaic using them and is on eBay for a three day auction starting today (Sat 22nd Feb!)  https://www.facebook.com/justmosaics.co.uk/photos/a.290444557724841.45149.286173521485278/429836557118973/?type=1&theater
I love looking at this mosaic - the colours are soooo vibrant and the tiles are different depths giving it a lovely 3D texture.  Might have to bid for it myself - now that IS sad!
Do take a look - what do you think?

Practical AND a mosaic work of art!

I'm in a practical frame of mind at the moment, everyone!

I know what it is like - you like a piece of art but do you NEED it?!  That's dodgy ground - I am the same - so many things I like, but where would I put it ... and the need issue comes into it too!

So,  I am combining my art with a practical use this week - so if you NEED a key rack or a lovely house warming present for someone special, then take a look here!

Mosaic flower key rack - available to order here with any of my flower mosaics - http://folksy.com/items/5565891-Mosaic-flower-key-rack-
Mosaic rainbow 'home' key rack - available to order here - http://folksy.com/items/5565851-Mosaic-rainbow-home-key-rack
If I can bring a bit of colour to your home, do get in touch!

My eBay ventures are going well - the auctions will end every Sunday afternoon/evening so do keep an eye on what is on offer -  http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/felicityjustmosaics.  This week, this varied collection of mosaics are up for auction if you are interested ..


Thanks once again for keeping me company in my blog - it's half-term here in the UK, so I have lots of company at home too!

Mosaic flowers!

Hey everyone,

Welcome to all new (and old) followers of my blog - thanks for all your comments and shares - I really appreciate it - lovely to know you are out there!

I had a lovely time today making this mosaic flower collage - just because I am really proud of them and love the colour - esp. with all  this awful UK weather!

Here it is!



I love making mosaic flowers, looking at them closely and trying to create them as realistic as possible.

All my flowers are available to order here - https://beta.folksy.com/shops/felicityball/collections/102971
or if your favourite flower isn't there, I am always up for a mosaic challenge!

Just Mosaics and eBay

Hello everyone,

Just to let you know that I am now selling and auctioning my mosaics on eBay!

It wasn't as scary as I thought, and I now understand how it works a bit more.  To start with, I thought I would sell my smaller mosaics, and auction some of my bigger pieces - so why not take a look and see if you can grab yourself a bargain?!

Here is the link -

Just one of my mosaics up for auction at eBay!

It would be GREAT if you could show my mosaics some eBay love!

Thank you!
