Hello blog friends!
I have really enjoyed making this mixed media mosaic today.
I wanted to make something impressionistic, capturing a mood and atmosphere.
I did not want to use grout, so the spaces between the tiles and the driftwood played a part in the movement of the piece.
I painted the board first in light blue, and then chose the pieces of driftwood which reflected the movement of the waves.
I arranged them on the blue board, stuck them and then varnished them with matt varnish to protect the driftwood.
When all was dry, I chose three shades of blue tile and snipped wave shapes, and started to fit them in, from light blue to the mid, then darker blue. It was tricky to accommodate the driftwood shapes, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out!
It is now up for auction on eBay, if you fancy owning a piece of original mosaic art!
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.
