Mosaic Swing and Sling!

Today I invented a new mosaic technique I am calling Sandy's Swing and Sling! It's how to do indirect mosaic technique on sticky plastic. I have hundreds of mosaics on sticky plastic and had to work out to how manage to reverse them all and have them keep intact to place all over the huge chair boards for the Ispwich Chairs. The Sandy Swing and Sling is working so well.

BFB also known and Beautiful Brenda, helped me do the Swing and mum did the Sling...whilst I did the Sticky Stanley knife cutting! Looking great! Shirley aka Polly helped me with the black paper background on Tuesday.

It's working so well! After we place the mosaics on the boards tomorrow with help from Cheryl and Lee we will be well on the way to the overall design, with an overview and artistic guide from Phillip on Saturday.

The workshop desks are piled high with mosaics and it's quite exciting! I am a bit cold and tired and Brad came for dinner with fish and chips and some champagne! Hard to keep going now!

We are very excited about the mosaics for the Ipswich Queen's Park Gardens - the joyous colour and mosaics made by the school students, teachers and parents and mosaic team are going to be spectactular in a stunning setting and the story woven into the mosaic tells of the Indigenous tribes and history of the area. More soon!
