These mosaics were made the same way the journal mosaic was made, but with more detail. With the shell mosaic I added beads to make it take the desired shape of a shell. With the sunflower and the red I cut the pieces instead of having them all one uniformed shape. As you can probably see on the sunflower I got a little impatient with the red squares near the end and they came out different sizes than the rest of them. Oh well, you live and learn by your mistakes. Mosaics are not only fun but they are very relaxing too. I have found you have to enjoy lot's of little details in order to do them and therefore must have patience for details. If you enjoy that, then you will enjoy doing some of your own.
