Mosaic with Stroppel Cane

The sun went down a few hours ago so this is not the greatest photo but this is what I made today. It is a polymer clay mosaic with Stroppel Cane for the grout.

I mix my own colors and had all these little scraps of metallic shades that were destined for the mud pile. That is until I saw Alice Stroppel's blog post about her Stroppel Cane. I fell in love with the look and have seen so many fabulous variations made by lots of different artists. I had been wanting to make a new keepsake box and want to thank Alice for giving me the inspiration for a new mosaic, and something to do with my scraps.
