I'm getting old...my youngest turned 21 today.
Aside from some medical issues, I don't *feel* old. Fortunately, I look pretty good for my age, unlike a lot of kids I went to grammar school with. (I still say kids- when I should be saying "people").
So, what in the world does this have to do with nails???
Well...my mani was inspired by an art project my 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Verttoli, had us do once a week. For the record, that was in 1969 when I was 9 years old- 41 years ago!
Anyway, Mrs Verttoli would pass graph paper printed with 100, 1 inch blocks for the class to color on. Almost all the kids would turn the paper over and color the blank side. Me- I used the graph side, treating each block as a separate canvas. I worked several colors in each block, playing with a mix of floral shapes. When finished, I had 100, 1 inch designs on my paper. Mrs Vertolli loved these so much, she wallpapered the cubby her desk was in with them. She called them mosaics. I learned a better descriptive term for my graph paper art many years later- Millefiori.
As always, all pictures are clickable for the ginormous view.
