Photo frame Challenge in eBay group

The girls in A Mosaic View Society group on eBay just finished a photo frame challenge today. The challenge was to mosaic , grout and show off your finished 10" photo frame . 12 girls entered and tonight we are posting the results in group.
Mine frame was based on a MDF 10" photo frame that holds a 4x6" photo. I used my handmade kiln fired violet tiles with stems and embossed leaves. I added some blue fill tiles all around . Used some frosted blue gems on the edges of the frame and grouted it in a charcoal gray grout. Once it was all dry I sealed it with some Aqua Mix grout sealer. Once the grout sealer was good and dry I glued on green glass leaves added some handmade 3D purple violets and finished it off with vintage rhinestone buttons and vintage earring.. That was the perfect finish touch.
Results are being posted in the group tonight.
I enjoyed the challenge and we start another one tomorrow with 9" or larger Terra cotta flower pots.
I also sell tile for other mosaic artists on eBay, I do handpainted, kiln fired tiles, also decaled tiles that are frefired in the kiln, just like the china companys do.. here is a link to my eBAy store.
