Crafting With Nature: Pebble Mosaic
Mother Nature was kind enough to dump a few tons of fresh white sand on the creek banks for us this summer. Lots of sand and stones to play with, so we decided to have another go at nature art. This time we made a simple mosaic out of colorful stones. We had such fun searching for the right size and color for each section of the mushroom, and we were all happy with the final result - so much so that we're thinking of making a permanent one set in quick set concrete. It would be lovely to have a garden paver to remind me of our special day at the 'beach'.
I hope this inspires you to go out and make a little artwork with nature. It's so fun, and can be quite a meditative experience. Why not check out the link above and see what inspires you? There are lots of leaves and twigs and pinecones and such around this time of year. What might you make with them?
Please let me know if you do. We'd love to see what you make :)
Thank you to Jules at Adventures in Thread for inspiring us to make our own nature art. Hopefully, there will be many more to come!
