Tiles Gone Wild: New Directions In Mixed Media Mosaics by Chrissie Grace is such a fun exploration into using just about everything you can put your hands on and using it in a new way to make fabulous mosaic projects.
I made a mold for casting bricks out of aluminum flashing and I impressed words into them but as I was flipping though this book Chrissie has a fabulous project for adding mosaic work to the top of store bought bricks. I know it’s the simple things, but I just never thought of it! She has projects that include using broken dishes, bottle caps and broken glass. All of her projects include fabulous step by step instruction with great photos to guide you along your own creative trail. There are projects for indoors and out. There are also some great instructions for working with photos and computer designs in addition to working on flat surfaces and dimensional. If you are looking to recycle some broken stuff you have been keeping around, this book is packed full of way s you can make it into something new and fabulous.
