This is just beautiful! You should consider having this printed on canvas and framed, it really is lovely. I've been playing with mosaics a bit this weekend, it's fun and I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. Maybe I'll join next week. Kathy

Lisa said...

Your peonies are gorgeous! I've never done the mosaics. I probably need a tutorial! LOL

Chari said...

Mornin' Cathy...

Just read the sweet note that you left for me on my Spring Green tablescape...thank you so much for coming by and for leaving such sweet comments!

Ohhh my...what a fabulous mosaic! I love the "all white"...and those peonies are gorgeous!!! I'm just now learning how to do the mosaics...don't know why I've waited so long to try my hand at these...I love doing the photo/graphics things on here. Was wondering what program that you use to make your mosaics? I have been playing around with Big Huge Labs...but have noticed many mosaics, such as yours, with a different layout. Maybe I'll get it together eventually so I can join in with Mary's Mosaic Monday!

Anyway...such a beautiful piece of art!!! Have a wonderful week, my friend!

Love all the white--you even stuck some chocolate in there-yummy!

Jeanne said...

I love how you themed it to all things that are white. That flower is surely the focal point of it but each and every picture is beautiful.

Laura said...

Dear Cathy-
I need your help! Would you give me the steps you follow to create a mosaic and how it is so large? Is it because you are using a minima stretch background?

Help- if you have time!
