It's been a week full of sunflowers here at mosaic HQ! - just as well as we have been hit by this new phenomenon to us in the UK, a 'weather bomb'!
I have been so looking forward to making this commission. My customer wanted a sunflower exterior mosaic in the shape of my spring flowers mosaic (see below) and the rest was up to me!
|First, the design - I looked closely at heaps of images of sunflowers, their stalks and their leaves.|
|Choosing the tiles from all my lovely sunflower colours is always tricky, but more isn't necessarily better, so I stuck with these little beauties!|
|Then I had a day or two of cutting and sticking and looking...|
|.....leaves and stalks were then added ...|
|....and then the very intricate seed centres!|
