I have family staying with me at the moment and it is very difficult to get half the art done that I usually like to do each day.
Last week on Book of Days the prompt was: something that challenges you and the technique was mosaics.

As I thought about what challenges me I thought of my relatives staying and how hard it is when we have been empty nesters for about 6 years. I am not used to having children and dogs around. I was flicking through a magazine thinking how lovely all the pictures were and it would be a shame to throw them away. Then I came up with the idea to use them for my mosaics.The other techniques I chose to use from Effy's work was the stencilling she did and the big writing. I am quite happy with the finished page. I did journal under the mosaics but had to cover it up. The quote reminds me it is about my nephew.


  1. This is a wonderful page! Love it. The colours and pictures you used go together so well. Great job! :D

    1. Thanks Trish. I had a lot of fun with it.
