Mosaic Photo Essay

The grout is still wet but most of the jewels are wiped off.
Messy projects are the most fun.
Little jewelry box.
It's a lot like putting icing on a lumpy cupcake. Next I have to wipe off the excess grout with a wet sponge.
I haven't done a mosaic project in years yet I am always fascinated with them. So after getting a craft book at a used bookstore and seeing the mosaic section, I decided to make mosaics part of my life again. It was lovely weather today so I sat down and put grout on the mosaics I started yesterday. Now I just have to let them dry and paint the rest of the wood.
