So apparently mosaics make for great wedding gifts! This is the 5th or 6th one that’s been snatched up for just such a purpose. Well, technically speaking, this one wasn’t exactly snatched up… it was requested by the bride and groom themselves.
They pretty much gave me complete freedom to do whatever I wanted. The only parameter was that they wanted something inspired by their outdoor wedding location: trees and a stream. Obviously, I took quite a few artistic liberties.
Two little things to point out: (1) If you look closely, you might be able to see that I used two different grout colours (grey for the water part, brown for the trees). It was the first time I’d tried that and I’m not sure why I was so intimidated by the prospect – it was easy peasy! (2) See the little bit of mirror in the bottom right-hand area of the mosaic? That was found by the dumpster with some post-its on it that said “You are beautiful in every way” and “Remember to take your vitamins”. Just a little bit of trivia for ya!
