I have just finished the final large mosaic (15x24") for my children's book! It was one of the faster ones, which feels really good coming towards the end of the project. I have one more design to go, a half size mosaic (15x12") which I hope to finish this month and then I will move onto the changes. I have kept a list (quite long, actually) of what I want to change in my earlier mosaics. Most are pretty small, but there are a few that will take some time. I will post those later, as I complete them, to give an idea of what I'm doing. As an example, this brick house was a grey house (my house) in an earlier mosaic, but it works better as brick, so now I need to go back and change the earlier one to brick. I wanted the book to reflect as many personal things in my life as I could, but for the betterment of the book, my house won't be grey. There will also be some areas I change in the first three mosaics I made where I wasn't sure how to cut the glass for those areas and just went with what was easy, crazy paving. In the three years since I made those mosaics, I've grown and improved, so I'm going to take the crazy paving out and redo it nicer.
Welcome to my blog! I've been creating stained glass mosaics since 2005 and just started learning embroidery. My book, The Night Before Christmas, was published in 2013 and is illustrated with my mosaics. For those interested in taking a look at how I create my art, I share it all here. Thanks for stopping by!
