A Mosaic Welcome

I got up early today so I would have enough time to grout before heading out for the day. I am still new enough to mosaics to feel very nervous about grouting. But I had my handy instructions and just followed them to a 't'. I got brave and added blue pigment to the white grout so it would blend better with the painted sides and the tile colors. The very special pigment is from Roussillon, and it was such a thrill to open the little bottle and tap in some intense blue color.

I didn't realize the grout would dry lighter, but I am still pleased.

I do hope the recipient likes it!

And I am thankful for having found a new creative outlet!
