This afternoon someone contacted me and asked if I had any trees ready to go, and as luck would have it....my fingers are currently flecked with tiny shards of glass from the tree I am working on today (truth be told, I've been working on this for many, many yesterdays as well....trees take for-e-ver). Once I set the final tiles and grout it, everything will really pop.
There's a good amount of black iridescent glass to make the nighttime sky pop. the turquoise stars are fun, but my favorite bit here is the flower line, highlighted with some very 3-dimensional turquoise rosebuds. I like the effect of the added dimension here, will definitely try this again.
I am hoping it will be ready for my big show this weekend, the Lake Norman Fine Arts Fair in Huntersville, NC (in Birkdale Village). Fingers crossed!
