Having fun with mosaics!

 
I know I said I was limiting my time on the computer!

 
But it is just TOO much fun to work on mosaics this week!
I took pics of my jewelry trees.


And then made a sparkly mosaic!


Then I saw the roofers on a house nearby and took a photo of the roof.


 It looked like they had created a chimney with the stacks of shingles and I created a masterpiece with the photo! 


I KNOW! I have quite an imagination! hahaha!


And this little Flycatcher was so pretty on the fence at the Pruitt trailhead.


And I made stained glass out of it in photoscape. I've never used that before so now I'll be playing with that feature!


There was a squirrel in the palm tree so that became a mosaic, too!


And I snapped off pics of a few of the entrances to the neighborhoods here in my community.


I know I have more but I better do something else now!

Are you enjoying the holiday season?

I'm joining Angie for Mosaic Monday HERE . 

I'm linking with All Seasons at the Jesh Studio,


AND my Monday post HERE.

Diane - your jewel trees are a clever concept! Yes, you have an active imagination and we all are the beneficiaries! That stained glass is so special. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

Gina said...

Love your jewelry tree, Diane. So sparkly!!

Love your mosaics. And now I know where that Elf on the Shelf has gone!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love the creativity in your photo collages, Diane! I am NOT loving the new Google photos collage ability--it lacks editing tools that their old Picasa program had. Your jewelry tree is so pretty--another very creative idea!

Have a very Merry Christmas!! xoxo

Inger said...

Sandra and you will inspire each other, madsnappers both. Loved the Santa on the Roof.

Billie Jo said...

The Santa one is my favorite.
Have a cozy evening!

I love your mosaics! so creative. I don't know how to do that. It must be a program that you have. I love your jewelry tree. Do you have more than one? So pretty, and what a neat idea! A great way to display old jewelry. Love the others too, always your nature photos are wonderful. Thank you for coming back on to share with us. I hope your headaches are getting better? Please take care. Blessings....

Well, I absolutely love your jewelry tree!! Perfect!! Your mosaics are so fun, always, but especially today! Have a good week!!

NatureFootstep said...

It is obvious you had fun creating your mosaics. They are gorgeous! Love the idea with a jewelry Christmas tree. Maybe I should bling out my small tre and pot neckelesses and rings on it :) Would be cool!
The squirrel is cute and the flycatcher too. It made a great stained glass image. :)

take care!

ann said...

I love your trees. It's good to be back in Florida again. I've missed you and your great walks. My son in law is a roofer. He, his dad, and his sister work very hard. Looks like your team has great help. HO HO HO. Thanks for staying with me.

Linda said...

Hi there girlfriend, I love your jewelry trees, that is such a cool idea and wow!--they turn out pretty. Did you make yours or did you buy them? Love all the mosaics, they turn out so pretty, you have gotten so good at making those! Don't think I've ever tried that. I'd probably make a mess of it, LOL!! That stained glass one is very cool and I love what you did with the rooftop picture, LOL LOL, fun!!

Buttercup said...

What fun pictures! Especially enjoyed seeing Santa up on the rooftop. Take care!

Red Rose Alley said...

Your mosaics are creative, and I think my favorite was the sparkly jewelry tree. That's a great idea to have a jewelry tree. I don't have much jewelry as I get older, but what I do have I love. I couldn't help but notice your red plaid tablecloth....it looks so Christmassy. And I love how you draped pearls around your tree. How lovely that looks.
