300th post & new mosaic pieces

Good Friday morning everyone! I am amazed at the fact that today is my 300TH post on my blog since February 2008. I do love my blogging friends & thank you all so much for dropping by.
Today is mosaic day! When I was visiting my sister & brother a couple of weeks ago we slipped in a little mosaic class with Julia Jae at the Black Door Studio in Everett Wa. I am making a point, from now on, to attend one of Julia's classes on each trip. She is positively wonderful & so very generous with herself & all her supplies. I completed three pieces. These all started with styrofoam. We spread the tile adhesive over each piece & applied the glass/marbles etc. I did 2 with grout & 1without grout. They were quite fun to do. Thank you so much, Julia!!

Those pieces look great! You make it sound so easy, but I've always been a bit intimidated by mosaic art myself.
