Ch #64 - "Fantasy Garden" Favorite

Congratulations to Susan Turlington!

Susan won our recent "Fantasy Garden" Challenge with this beautiful piece.  

Inspired by Chihuly, it's called "Fantasy Garden".  It is on a 16" x 12" base with a mosaic of stained glass, glass beads, shells, drift wood, jade and fused glass.  Beautiful!

The Mosaic Challenge Group Lives!

Guess What.  The Mosaic Challenge Group lives!

Sadly, we've stopped using Flickr for the group, because there just weren't many people displaying their work there, and now we're using Facebook.  However, there are a lot of nice features on Facebook, so it's been very positive.

You can find the group here.  Mosaic Challenge - Facebook

Currently we're all voting for our favorite "Fantasy Wonderland" pieces, found here:  Fantasy Wonderland Photo Album

Here's a look at the entries we have so far for Challenge #65 - South of the Border

New Challenge! Plate, Dish or Saucer - Challenge #40

Hi Everyone,

Laura (LauraInSpain) won the "Landscapes" challenge which ended July 31, and she's picked a fabulous new challenge for us:  "Plate, Dish or Saucer".

I am especially looking forward to this, because I've had an unfinished dish sitting in my basement studio for FAR too long.

The challenge starts today, August 13, and ends October 31, 2010.  Pieces that are in process right now may be finished and entered, but previously completed pieces should not be used.  Check out more details here.

Ch #36 "Yard and Garden Art" Favorites Announced

Hi Everyone,

The "Yard and Garden Art" challenge was excellent.  We had 29 entries!

The top three favorites have won a $25, $15 and $10 gift certificate from Glass Tile of Oklahoma - our sponsor.  Check out their website here.

If you're not already a member, you're welcome to join the Mosaic Challenge Group on Flickr.  See details here.  You don't have to submit a piece to enjoy the group and vote.

The number one favorite was created by Margo (Remygem).

She created "Cats in Party Hats".  It is fantastic!  :-)

The second place favorite is "Water Feature" by Caz Kovacs.  What a ton of work this must have been.  It's a gorgeous, and no doubt - peaceful - piece.

And the third place favorite is "Bell of the Ball" by Doreen Bell.  This is so fun!

Margo gives us this food for thought:  "maybe Cinderella's glass slipper, a frog prince, a scene from Alice in Wonderland like the caterpillar smoking his pipe on his mushroom... "
