A mosaic inspired by a blind!

Hello blogger friends,

The 'summer' (raining here again in the UK!) is coming to an end, and it is nearly time for the children to return to school.  I have found time this holidays, though,  to complete this mosaic commission.

My client wanted a piece of art to complement the new blind in her room - see below.

She also had a grey splash back for her sink, which she wanted me to bear in mind with the design.  See below.

We decided on a size - not too small as we had a blank wall to play with.  65cm x 48cm seemed about right.  With all these things in mind,  I started on my design, then the snipping, sticking and grouting.
I really enjoy making this kind commission - and a unique piece of art results!
And here it is!

I used three different shades and thickness of red tiles for the flowers, the green tiles are slightly thicker than the background tiles, to give them a 3D feel.  The whole effect is a vibrant, unique, textural mosaic work of art!

I hope you like it, and thanks for reading my blog!  If you have a mosaic commission in mind, do get in touch -
