Garden Stones

My friend Carol and I took a class at Luck Community Ed on making a mosaic garden stone.  The teacher was a friend from my LHS days and we had a blast.
The process is clever and we ended up with a nice stone at the end of the day.
I didn't take very many photos because I was busy being creative, but here are a few.

Carol's S after contact paper is applied to design and then the design is pulled off and set aside.

My Danish heart after it is set in the thin set.

 Now it takes a spot in the hall of fame between Dad's VJ cement block that he made as a teen-ager and The Johansen Cement Block Mfg. Co block made at that same time.

 It was a fun class.
We already signed up for the next class, we'll be smarter, 
and it will be fun to see what we do next.
Loving the stones.
