Mosaic art has been around almost forever, starting way back in the 3rd millennium BC – if you’re a history buff, check out the wiki page.

Mosaics usually involve creating an image or piece of art using small pieces of glass, tile or stone. It can be just a lovely naïve pattern in gorgeous colours or an intricate piece. The options are endless, and anything can be covered in mesmerising patterns.

Creating landscape art scenes don’t always need to be complicated. Look at this lovely bare branch with pink blossoms and an amazing blue sky!

Perhaps work to a theme and keep colours in the same tones as other elements in your home’s exterior finishes.
