I am always looking for objects to use to display pictures, especially ones of the grand kids. After I had finished creating the mosaic shelf for my spare bedroom, I wanted to place a picture on the shelf, but not in an ordinary frame.

Mosaics are one of my favorite projects. There are many materials that can be used to create mosaic pieces, it depends on what you are doing and what effect you want to create. You can use plates, which I use often. It is fun to collect vintage and old plates that can be broken* to create decorative designs. Sometimes you can find beautiful pieces that might have a chip in them, which would make them otherwise unuseable.
