Mosaic Stepping Stones
Posted on : October 16, 2013

Thanks to all of you who attended the Mosaic Stepping Stone class at The Arbor Gate! I thought I would share a few photos that I hope will inspire you to create your own unique work of art.

Peace & love,
Steven

Three informal, fun designs, and my best Texas Star design. (It took a lot of time and patience!)
