Mosaic Monday - Inspiring colours in art and nature

I'm not back properly yet. We are still very busy with the latest phase of cottage renovations which will probably go on a few weeks yet. Computer is still playing up and there are other things going on but I couldn't still my urge to create a couple of mosaics for Mosaic Monday
























Wonderful art and photography from my flickr contacts and faves

1. Cleavers 2. The fog 3. Open doors 4. Eiskalter Nachmittag an der Eder 5. Planted detail middle 6. A piece of old sky 7. Pussy willows, cat tails , soft winds and roses 8. Untitled 9. Blue Turkey Tail (tramentes versicolor)

I like to mix art with nature and these colours are really inspiring me at the moment- blue, grey and golden light

This mosaic is just a collection of some of the photos I've shown recently which I think look good together. I hope to be back showing more sketchbook pages soon ...
























Have a happy day

Carolyn ♥
