Mosaic backdrop- need your picture!!

Spring Fever is upon us and that means being a little antsy for a project!

My plan is to do a backdrop in mosaic tile/glass for a new aquarium, which will be an interesting medium :) I have attempted mosaics before with magazines and boy may I say it is time consuming, but the end product is wonderful!!

The type of photo I am looking for is either one of your betta(s) or a picture of a landscape, so for instance you took a picture of lovely sunset.

Anywho I was wondering if anyone would be willing to post a picture that I can use. I won't guarantee I will use it, but if I do pick yours as a little incentive I will make a duplicate version.

The duplicate version will most likely be the size of computer paper so 8x12.

Hopefully I will be able to start on Thursday and keep you updated on the progress! So please post your photos!

Well I've got some pics you could use if you want . . . these are a couple of my favorites:
I have lots of sky pics because I love clouds.

would you like some pics.."under the sea"? Probably not in their best quality though since I didn't use "real underwater camera", was just my phone.
