One of my favorite events of the year is the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Candy Cane Gala. It’s a brilliant celebration in honor of those who give so much to help so many, and I’ve been honored to be part of it for many years now.
2014’s theme was “Northern Lights”, and we built the mosaic as a “Secret mosaic”, where the kids (and some parents) each got a 6×6 plate and a map of what that square should look like. We then added all the squares to the board, and the piece was complete. I then added some detailing to the corners, and built up some areas of the piece with translucent plate to make things pop. I think it turned out pretty great!
