Make Some Art Monday

Today is "Make Some Art Monday" over at Chrissie Grace! Chrissie is a wonderful and inspirational artist! I just love her work! She decided to have an art blog party, and I just had to join in!

Unfortunately, I just found out about it a couple of days ago, so I had to brainstorm for an idea. The theme was "favorite quotes" and I knew if I was doing a mosaic...I needed a short quote. So I love the quote "Love is patient, Love is kind..." Here is what I came up with.
Please keep in mind that I need to grout in some areas again, plus I need to seal it and shine it up! I used a wooden cross that I had with an inset, part of a vintage rose plate, and some glass that I purchased from Youghiogheny Glass. I am very lucky that they make this wonderful glass right here in my town! If I'm ever in need of a certain color I drive on over, and get my choice of glass! It's great! This was soo fun to make! Hope you enjoy!
Here's a closeup of the saying! I used alphabet beads for the quote!
Have a wonderful Monday!

So pretty,, I bet that took a lot of time. I love mosaic.
I have a big round table patiently waiting for a mosaic top.. I've never attempted to do a mosaic before though..

Hi Ruth Ann
This is so pretty! I use that iridescent white stained glass in a lot of my mosaics too. It's so pretty!
I love how you painted the outside wood pink, it really highlights the mosaic!
Thanks so much for playing!
