You'll get there! :)

thats quite good! is it going to be a sunflower? apologies if it isnt!!

18 May, 2012

 

Not happening....back in the bag, I will have another go again...will be the third attempt. :)

18 May, 2012

 

Love the centre. What are you using to cut the glass? And I love the idea what are you not happy with?

18 May, 2012

 

Loving that centre Pimps it looking good what is the centre??? Takes a few design tries Pimp's dont give up it's making sure you have enough of the right colours to carry on the design annoying when you come up with something good only to find you don't have enough of a certain colour to complete it doh !

18 May, 2012

 

The centre is a drinks coaster (say nothing Nana d), Some of the glass is already cut Sticki, the off cuts from a stained glass work shop...but the rest I am using the glass cutter Lil very kindly sent me. I will have a go at it again later.

18 May, 2012

 

The Centre is glass bugal beads Nana...You can buy them on ebay in a few colours...(I should have looked first)

18 May, 2012

 

I am liking that idea ALOT have you got enough of the red and oranges cos I think it looks good?

18 May, 2012

 

I liked this a lot.... is there no end to your talent Pim....

18 May, 2012

 

Lol HB..Looks like there is no beginning to it!

Nana..I got a delivery from Tempsford the other day...but forgot to order more like this...Doh!

18 May, 2012

 

Looking very good, Pims! Try not to cut yourself when rooting around in the bag! You'll never be happy with it, but the rest of us can see how fantastic and beautiful it is already. Buon lavoro!

18 May, 2012

 

My, my, my....look at what you get up to when I leave you alone for a bit!
Have to agree with Gattina!
Happy you have found the glass cutter useful. Now get back to it....sound of whip cracking ;)))))

18 May, 2012

 

There's a lot of that whip business going on between you two - is there anything the rest of us should know? ;-)

18 May, 2012

 

Lol Gattina! You'll just have to wait for the video....need Pimp to sign off on it before I can post it on YouTube ;)))

18 May, 2012

 

Also meant to say that it is so nice seeing one of the men folk stepping up to the mosaic plate ;)))

18 May, 2012

 

Apart from the centre, I wasn't sure whether this was designed as a mosaic or a stained glass picture. Almost interchangeable, sometimes.
Can't wait for that video!!!!

18 May, 2012

 

Might be the centre that's bothering me.,.,,,.,,,I wouldn't go as far as to say 'designed' G. The movie could take ages...it's the perfectionist in me ;)

18 May, 2012

 

If this is a very large base and the centre is coaster size ~ its going to take a mighty long time!!!

18 May, 2012

 

The base may be a bit big..re-thinking

18 May, 2012

 

looking great

18 May, 2012

 

need lulu's advice, or lil's!...or nana d

18 May, 2012

 

Is it a mosaic ? Sorry if that's a daft question ....

18 May, 2012

 

That's great - I love(d) it as it was, unfinished! What are you using for that base? Remember you won't see much of the base once it's finished.

18 May, 2012

 

Hywel it just me trying a mosaic...

Have to nip to B&Q for a better base Scottish, just realised I have to finish it now.. :/

18 May, 2012

 

paving slab pimms? that would be smaller??

18 May, 2012

 

The movie is perfect Pimp....only shows your good side ;))

Just take your time with this Pimp, no rush.....

18 May, 2012

 

Gattina is right. It's good that you're having a go - and all your admirers are rooting for you :)) No good expecting perfection with your first try . . . decide to be an Imperfectionist - much more relaxing!

18 May, 2012

 

i see what you are saying sheila but i dont think a perfectionist can set out to be an imperfectionist;

however i am thinking that the key is to relax ~ that way the imagination starts ~ its what i do when i go to lulu's and it makes ALL the difference.

[believe me ~ i am too much of a perfectionist so i know how it feels]

18 May, 2012

 

Here I thought you were being a perfectionist about our whipping video :/

18 May, 2012

 

I was..I need to be cutting some whiplash curves....

This is what I dont get. I have a beautiful piece of glass.................and I need to cut/break it and put it back together. I will work it out.

18 May, 2012

 

BaaaaHaaaaHaaaaa....welcome to the insanity of making mosaics :))))
Don't let the pressure make you crack Pimp...deeep breath. You can do it!!!!!

18 May, 2012

 

I think one or two relaxing drinks or a maybe a spliff could do wonders for your creativity, Pims, or if it doesn't, at least you won't care!!!!! (Oh NAUGHTY Gattina!)

19 May, 2012

 

Memory from "I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again". "I think my neighbour's growing cannabis!" Response "Ask if you can try some: if no effect, then its something harmless; if you're right, you won't care!!"

Pimm's - it is scary - seems we've all been there. You do have an artistic soul so no reason why you can't produce something beautiful. I wish you luck with the relaxing.

19 May, 2012

 

Lol....and SHOCKED!!!! ;))

19 May, 2012

 

Oh my.....suddenly I'm craving chocolate cake and chips, lots and lots!!
:))))

19 May, 2012

 

Aw, come on, Pims, I can see you from here - that's not shock, that's wishful thinking!!!!!

19 May, 2012

 

PERFECTIONISM in mosaic making is a no no..because you never know what it will look like until the final grout!
How kind of Lil to send to cutters x
As for the cannabis next door...we need a photo!

21 May, 2012

 

I offered to 'send' myself over to give him a hand but he wouldn't have it Lu :/

21 May, 2012

 

A very 'special delivery' Lil!
