Today I am posting pics of a finished mosaic that I swapped with artist Eve Lynch. The video below shows both my piece and her piece. We were working under the theme of "Man Eating Plants". You can learn more about Eve and see more of her work over at Krakenmosaics.com
. You can see more of my mosaics on my personal portfolio site Rebeccacollins.com. Enjoy the Vlog post below. It has been awhile since I did any video rambles.


About The Mosaic Art Swap: We traded a list of 3 subjects neither of us had done mosaics on yet. We went with one of her subjects " Man Eating Plant". It was early October and the fun and silly subject was a total blast to work on. I chose to create my project on a 3-D box and continue the glass around the edges. Eve created her work by making a polymer clay monster that worked well with the glass and she trimmed the entire spookiness off with a spiked border. I totally love the work she created for me and look forward to more swaps with more artists in 2010.

Looks to me like both of you artists got super lucky with your trade! Both pieces are wonderful!

Eve's the best! :D I loved collaborating with her on Cosmic Collar.

Great video, Rebecca! Love both pieces. Wonderful detail by you both (not surprising in the least!). I'm fortunate to own artwork from you and Eve! Except now I need a mosaic by you :-)
