I'm back from my internet Christmas break. We didn't do a lot for Christmas which is exactly the way we like it. I did wake this monring to find that someone gifted me a cold so I'll have that for a few days.
I continued to focus on the mosaic wall and have a few more sections done.
I got the idea for this one off Pinterest so I can take no credit for it. It's my tribute to family vacations at the beach. I had planned on a pale blue sky but once I started putting the sky pieces in I hated it. I decided for a sunset (or sunrise). It's multi colored because I didn't have enough bits of any one color to do the whole thing. Sometimes when we are forced to make do we actually get something better and I think that's true in this case.
I've been wanting to do this chicken for a while. I've also been wanting to add some purple to the wall and this seemed a fine place to do it. Aside from the beak and legs I tried to make every element a non-traditional color. So we have a purple chicken with green wings, a blue flower with a pink stem and mirror grass with a yellow sky.
You can see that I have the next section "basted" in place.
The side sections are really difficult (and boring) for me so when I came up with the bead element for one section I decided to carry it into the next one too. Two side sections done pretty quickly.
I have 3 full sections, 2 bottom sections and 1 side section left to do and I'm planning to keep pressing to get this wrapped up!
