Beautiful butterflies!

Summer Meadow Mosaic Butterfly Hanging Decoration

I've found some new bases to work on. Butterflies! Bit of a mosaic classic, but I'm going to try and do something different on them. The first one I put a version of my Summer Meadow design. I was originally going to go random with the flowers, but it ended up as a mirror version on each wing, which I think gives a lovely folk look to this butterfly, which even has mini iridescent butterflies in it's wings.

Blue Flowers Mosaic Butterfly Hanging Decoration

The second Blue Flowers butterfly I wanted to look kind of like blue and white china. I've used blues and turquoise to create the flowers including roses, poppies and daisies. Then an off white grout to finish, which has actually given the butterfly the look of sea worn blue and white pottery. It would look great in a seaside theme room, or just as a splash of blue on a fence or wall in the garden.

Mosaic Maisons

Mosaic Maisons, garden art for you, a cosy home for your garden birds.

New to my website (and the houses will be available on Etsy as I add them too), Mosaic Maisons. The idea was that bird boxes make the perfect way to display panels of mosaic, so they become like a practical frame for garden art. Mosaic Maisons is a fun way to offer these bird houses like an estate agent like luxury residences for your garden birds.

The first three boxes are these, although only one has made it onto my website, the other two have been reserved. So it pays to get in quick, just like on the real property market.
