It's DONE! This is the finished Surfboard Mosaic, to be turned into a bench & auctioned off to local business' in Portsmouth NH. Money raised will be donated, and help to keep New Hampshire Beaches clean! The sea creatures were donated by the PieceMaker Mosaic group (see the P.M. blog here). I organized the collaboration, designed the piece, added the creatures, and created the background. 

It's been a fun process... and I've learned a lot! The PieceMaker Group is truly unbelievable.... full of such giving & creative people. I'm so honored to be a member. :)

In the Spring, all the benches created will be auctioned off... and you can be sure I'll post how much the closing bid on ours was & will be traveling to Portsmouth right away to see it installed in it's new home!

This surfboard was a group project, by the PieceMaker Etsy Team. Members sent me the creatures, and I created the rest of the board. It's being turned into a public bench, donated, and auctioned off to local businesses in Portsmouth NH. Money raised will be spent to help keep NH beaches clean! See more information about the PieceMaker Surfboard Project on our blog:

If you're one of the artist's who donated a creature, please add a note above your creature! :)

Hopefully I'll get a better picture tomorrow when it isn't raining. :) Please check out the detail shots below.
