::Voting:: Ice Parfait Mosaics

It's time!  Today is a wet, windy, cold winter day - just the type of day for your Ice Parfait mosaics.  I love the clever names and inspiration process that many of you share.  Thanks to everyone who participated and to Cuts of Cotton for sponsoring this contest.  I've narrowed it down to 10 finalists, choosing mosaics that felt cohesive and inspiring.  As always, it was a really tough job to select only 10!

Enjoy perusing these lovely mosaics!  I've presented them first at large size to help you find your very most favorite one, with the name of the artist under each mosaic.  Voting is below with smaller images for reference.  Vote now through noon (eastern U.S. time) on Monday the 26th.   The two winning mosaics with the most votes will be announced on Monday.

Good Luck Everyone!

  1. I sit down to read my feedly while I eat my birthday cheesecake. I'm scrolling down looking at all the beautiful collection you picked, just scrolling along then stopped and scrolled back up - wait that's one of mine :O
    Who knew I would have a birthday surprise waiting for me!!! And it is just too funny that the number of my mosaic #1 was 35 which is the number I turned today!
    Thank you Rachel for the birthday gift - even if you didn't know ;)

  3. They're all lovely and it's very hard to choose just one.
    For us newbies, the next time you do a mosaic challenge would you please include a tutorial on how it works.
    Thanks
