Fall leaves glass mosaic

Hallo,

  Finished off this glass mosaic this weekend - put a coat of resin on Sunday afternoon and it will have the week to dry - cant get into the studio with working every day. I started this piece by making a drawing colored with colored pencils and taped it to the back as a pattern to follow. Spent several days cutting a bunch of glass initially and then whenever I ran out .

   I used an old wooden window frame that still had the glass in the top part. I painted it with a crackle finish several years ago and then finally pulled it out to use when I started doing the glass mosaic.

   All for today - Take Care

Locker hook rug with random patterns.

Hallo,

   Quick look at the last  Locker hook rug I finished last week. Random patterns on this one but fun to do. Purples and turquoise colors with double knit fabrics. I always have a rug in the works for my evening couch/TV time. 

   Lots of rain starting here in NW Florida today. 

   Take Care

Driftwood mosaic #2

 Hallo,
   Another driftwood piece for you today - I love how the glass and beads turned out  but I wasnt as happy with the resisn on this one - it turned the wood alot darker and I liked it as it was before the resin. I didn't think it would be that dark.
  It still looks cool though.
                                                                                                    All for today - off to the studio to play.
                                                                                                            Take Care

Driftwood mosaic #1

 Hallo,
   Finally getting around to posting this - finished it off about a month ago.
   I was sposed to be on vacation, flying to see my Niece get married this weekend, but covid had other ideas. The wedding was drastically reduced to parents and wedding party only but I decided to go up anyhow and visit with another niece and then drive a couple hours to my brothers place in wyoming and hang out with them and my Mom was going to go to his place too......well Mom decided not to travel and then my other niece didnt feel all that comfy with me coming either - and I had been worrying and debating anyhow so I just cancelled my trip.....kinda bummed but better to be safe......
     While I was playing with a glass mosaic piece last month, I picked up a couple pieces of drift wood to see what I could do with them. I added glass pieces, beads and seashells to this one and then a coat of resin.
     I am happy with it - and will show you the other one tomorrow. I need to find some more driftwood now.
   Take Care and stay safe ya'll

Glass mosiac lantern

 Hallo,
   Did a large lantern for my daughter and her hubby for their wedding anniversary. It is pretty much the same as my first lantern except a bigger one, but I also cut the glass into smaller pieces for this one as I like the smaller pieces  - I can get a more detailed look I think.
  The first 2 pics are regular and the last 2 are with some battery operated lights tuned on inside. Looks really good lit up!!!
   All for today - Take Care

Birdcage succulents

Hallo,
   I started this project back in Febr. when I ordered the succulents to put in them. BUT, thanks to Covid, I only got my succulents from the plant company a couple weeks ago and am just now getting around to posting the pictures for you to see.
  I spray painted 3 birdcages and then planted them with small succulents. I have tried hanging plants in this spot for years but they never last due to too much sun and not enough water, so I thought I would try this.
  Not quite how the pinterest projects other have done but I like how they turned out.
   All for today - Take Care
