|Finished frame with photo from our trip to Tobermory|
This summer has been hectic - as I have probably mentioned in every post hehe. But last week, I had two days where my Mom was able to leave the farm in between field work (further up north in Ontario) and come down for a visit. One of the things we did was a little 'craft project' - it was super, super hot outside, and so finding something to do inside was indeed called for. She's also a creative person, so it was perfect!
|After all the white plaster was dry.|
Neither of us have done mosaic work before, so this was completely new territory, and the result has some cracks in the plaster I think because we weren't quite sure what we were doing 100%. But it was fun, and I think the cracks add some character :) I 'mosaic-ed' a wood frame, and my Mom did the top of two little boxes.
After it was all dry, I added a tint of brown paint to give it a more vintage look to go along with the cracks. I really like how the blue and brown go together.
|I love the little 'jewel' tiles that I have on the corners, they take in so much|
light and sparkle
This project took lots of concentration and fiddling (as we did not know what we were doing LOL), but I really love the effect of tiles. It's a nice addition to the decor in our house, and it's neat to know that I made it.
