I may come back to black and white. They are really very classy looking. Here's a mosaic with buttons I played with for a yahoo group challenge. I had a spiral thing in mind when I started. I think it's ok, but I will probably try again and mix buttons and beads in a more definite pattern. I may also do some stamped polymer clay tiles - I have soooo much polymer clay. But it was fun to do this and see how easy it was, especially with Golden's molding paste. I like have a textured background showing in between mosaic pieces. Maybe doing a mosaic mixed with some stamping into the molding paste. Hmmm. . . . I'm still job searching, but it does allow me a lot of time to play, which I am enjoying.
