The Finished Piece!

I finally finished the mirror and was trying to get some good pictures of it.  The closeups are fairly easy to do but I sure have a hard time with the full front of my mirrors.  As soon as you snap the picture you realize that your feet were in it or the mirror is smudged or the flash went off and is blinding the photo.

Anyway, here it is.  I am very happy with the end result.  It took considerably longer to work each tile in so that the grout lines are finer, but it's a challenge and keeps me on my toes.

I was stuck for something interesting to do and my husband suggested I run some leaves up to the top so that's what I did.

The focal on this mosaic is a top to a trinket box that I hand painted to match the colors in the tiles.
I added a cute little knob that I hand painted in a rich salmon to enhance some of the flowers in the pattern of the dishes I used for this project.
