My colleague at work does stain glass at this place in Old Montreal. She asked me and another colleague if we would be interested in taking a Mosaics class. I figured why not ... so in December, I had the opportunity to work with a different medium ... glass!
We had the choice putting pieces of glass on glass or wood. I opted to do glass on wood ... no, it's not because I need to use some form of paper or something when I create :) It was for a practical purpose ... I could use the finished piece as a coaster ... instead of just a decorative piece with the glass on glass. I think that's another thing I get from my mom ... practical ... sometimes ;)
The 1st step was to draw a design for your "masterpiece" (I'm using this word really loosely!). I knew what I drew would be just the idea, and it would definitely not be exactly like that ... at least that was what I was hoping for. My drawing was very geometric ... and quite primitive as you can see! I just wanted to get the shapes down ... I really did not know what I was doing :)
The end result is definitely not like the drawing ... thankfully (I think)! However, you can see the basic idea is there. We had a lot of fun chatting while we cut and glued the glass. I would definitely consider taking another class ... but I don't think this would be a new hobby as I would have to sell off my paper and stamps to make room, which I'm not willing to do! Hubbie said I can only fill up one room in the house :)
