Not Working

Unfortunately this blog is not working the way I'd hoped to so  i'm removing it and going back to my old one,  I know I know I know I keep changing my mind but this is the last time i'll play around  and chop and change.

so now im in the middle of re-doing the old blog here    http://karenericksonsmosaics.blogspot.com.au/ and hopefully over the next few days i'll have it looking all nice and updated. so please bear with while I play around for the last time lol  

Happy Days

More Flowers :)

Ive just finished a couple more mosaics, just in time for xmas
Another flower panel but this one is a small one,  cant quite seem to get away from flowers lol 

This is all glass and i'll fill it with succulents for a chrissy prezzy :)

If I don't get back in here before next week then I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Fantastic 2014 xoxo  Cant wait to get stuck into way more mosaics, take some workshops, do some market stalls and generally have fun breaking things :)

Our Market Stall

Well we had a fun day at our market stall last Saturday, dispite the heavy rain but luckily no wind.  I don't usually put pics of me up here but this was the only pic we ended up taking right at the start. This was very early in the morning to lol , I had 3 good sales and was very happy with the day.  My friend Mary was with me as well and had a few of her pieces on this table to. We had a good gossip with other stall holders and had some really good feedback for the day. so all in all a happy day

This is the latest one ive finished, it has a lot of mirror and was very hard to take a pic off without see me looking back lol 

Were having another market day in about 2 weeks so im already working on some more pieces   Im so in love with everything about mosaics :)

My First Torso

I could not wait to make a start on this girl so I got the most beautiful blue green glass I could find here and took the plunge, im loving the way shes coming together so far so I thought i'd show a sneak peak of where im at. 
 So here she is in a couple of different stages and i'll put some more pics up as I go.

Depending on the light you can see a lot of the green but its mainly blue, I love the color and boy does she sparkle lol

I finally found time to practise Julee Latimer' tutorial on using mosaic mesh and loved it, so I did 1 and then another 4, Thanks so much Julee it was so cool and i'll definitely be playing with it some more :)
I did my rock fish first which I love and then couldn't resist doing the others and of course adding some bling which you cant really see in these pics but its there. The mesh made it so much easier to work on small things like rocks and im looking forward to trying it on something large later on

Have fun with whatever it is your working on :)
