Here's my project so far....I decided to try a dragonfly this time. It will have flowers surrounding it once its done. Mosaics are fiddly and take some time...the one thing I have little of.

Susan! Nice work on the dragonfly mosaic. It looks like you actually planned it out.

i just rolled, cut and baked a bunch of stuff using a brand new set of cutters , and then dumped it all on the table to see if anything came out of it. 

do you draw out your plan in advance and try to figure out all the shapes and sizes you will need? 

Do you cut your bits from raw or baked clay?

Baked clay strips. I roll it at a 5 setting. It is planned somewhat. The dragonfly was from a pattern on pinterest that i copied by hand (same with the bee). This one is benefitting from first one which wasnt as well planned. I found a plain background was a bit boring so I'm adding the flower shapes to give a little interest. The flowers were totally random before and from bits i already had. I like them so will do the same here.

Ive spent hours perusing the internet for ideas. Ive used embroidery patterns, mosaics and photos for inspiration. Whatever pops up in search lol.
