Mosaic Monday!

Searching for my i heart faces photo this week, which is focusing on hands I discovered that I had a lot of nice pictures of hands! You can see the picture I ended up choosing HERE
Photobucket
Hummm...now that I see them all together I think the one that stands out to me the most is of my son biting his nails!

I am missing the colors of my garden. Florida has been unusually cold this winter. All of my beautiful flowers and plants died from the frigid temperatures. My once vivid backdrop for my lovely chalkboards is now brown and dreary. I'll probably dig up many of my plants this Spring and replace them with more hardy plants. In the meantime here's a memory of what once was...

chalkboards

I also need to go out and search for more beautiful frames for my chalkboards. It's time to replenish the inventory!

Here's another color mosaic, to get us in the mood for Spring and Summer! These pictures were taken during my Creatively Fit walks.

Some readers have asked me how I do my mosaics. I do most of my mosaics in picasa. It's very easy and offers a wide variety of options. What programs do you us for your mosaics?

I will be learning how to make montages in my photoshop class this week, so I may be using photoshop for my next mosaic monday! Last week we learned how to do photo restorations in ps cs4. You can see a restoration that I did here

Pretty Mosaics! So sorry that you lost many plants this winter. It always makes me sad to replace plants.

Beautiful roses. I followed over to your photo shop restoration and left a comment.

Beautiful mosaic. I like the chalkboards - very unique.

For mosaics, I've used PSE and the mosaic maker from Big Fun Labs - I link to my photos in flickr. Really easy. Picasa is a great program, too.

Very lovely. The chalkboards are great. The roses are enchanting. Can't wait for summer!!!

Love all of the them! But I specially love the "hands mosaic". I have never photographed hands, but you gave me an idea.

The roses must smell great!
