T........



From the four pages of Y to pages and pages of T....too much choice...panic and then, as usual, flipping the pages the word jumped and stuck.  I find it fascinating and I am loving the Craft Barn Alphabet Challenge .  The word is TESSELLATED, my dictionary says "formed in little squares or mosaic work" I have marvelled over the micro mosaics of the Gilbert Collection which are now in the V&A and I have clever friends who make mosaics.  I opted for squares. I made a gelli "landscape" and cut it into 99 pieces.
I now have even more respect for the makers of real mosaics.

Not having any grandchildren of my own I can still imagine the joy this little bundle has brought.

What fun the Tessellated T piece is...and yes, isn't the little fellow a bonnie wee one? Just the joy this troubled ol' world needs right now.

Tessellate jumped out at me too!! I just did a border and that was fiddly enough. Love your page and well done on keeping it all together!!
