Paint Party Friday and Art Every Day Month day 22

Phew, I did it. I finished my mosaic! I have to bring it in on Monday for the exhibition, and still have to paint the back and put a hanging system in place. And I won't have much time this weekend (what's new ...!?). So I'm very glad I finished her. I was getting sick and tired of it, and now that she's finished I'm not sure I even like her. Probably had an overdose of her this week ... ;-)

Here she is:

It's hard to get a decent picture as long as she's not hanging on the wall. Usually I use a white foamboard to put underneath my projects when I want to make pictures, but I lent it to my daughter for her jigsaw-puzzle ..... I'll post her again when the hanging system is in place, or even better: when she's at the exhibition. Here are some details:




I don't think I like her face. Something about it bothers me. A lot.  And I won't start another mosaic figure until I find out what it is and what I can do about it ....

Anyway, like every week, here's an overview of all my AEDM-projects:

Day 16: lyricsgirl
Day 17: magnets
Day 18: intuitive painting
Day 19: doodlegirl
Day 20: some summertops
Day 21: miniature-painting

Got a lot done this week. And getting into the habit of doing something every day really makes things easier in the end.

About my question last week: thanks to everyone who tried to help. I finally got a usable answer from the fourth person I contacted at Society6. He said they currently don't charge taxes on sales. Simple answer. Why it took them so long to give me that answer is beyond me, but hey, I'm happy. I've already registered and hope to find some time next week to get my shop stocked. Stay tuned ... ;-)

Well, that's it for now, gotta get ready to bring my daughter to gymnastics-training. Thank you so much for visiting! I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday and Art Every Day Month. Go have a look at all the wonderful links on these sites, it's worth it!

Wishing you a wonderful Friday and a relaxing weekend ! I'll be back tomorrow ♥ ♥ ♥

  17. I think she's beautiful, especially with all the color and design...I would love to do this with my polymer clay canes, but they are all so old now, I'll have to start from scratch. You have inspired me for the winter now, just have to put it on my to-do list.

    1. Thanks Tammy! I used some small canes that I purchased, but the rest of the tiles I made myself form polymer clay. I use MDF as my substrate. Have heard of wedi-board but not sure whether they sell it here in Australia .... Haven't found it yet, but then I didn't really look either ....

  24. Your mosaic lady is absolutely stunning, and she looks happy to be dancing with abandon, so I like her face. The week's work looks great all together like this, and even though I've followed each day it's enjoyable to see them all again. Good luck with the exhibition and the Society6 shop.
