My sister got married earlier this month. She's the first one in my family to do so. It was a big deal. I had the pleasure of being her Maid of Honor. The wedding was small and intimate and we had a great time. I asked her what she wanted for her wedding present and she told me she wanted me to make her something. She loves Link from The Legend of Zelda and wanted something from Wind Waker. She found these mosaics online and wanted me to recreate one for her with some adjustments. This thing took me FOR-EH-VER; I'm talking 10 hours. It measures out to about 3.5 x 9 inches and I bought a nice floating frame to put it in. I used different papers to make it. I also painted paper and would go over that with paint on a dry brush to give it a sort of stained-glass look. I'm happy with how it turned out (considering I haven't done a cut out in some time). I wish I had taken a picture of her face because when I gave it to her, she lit up. Here's a close up of the image and here's a picture of my sister holding the framed piece up. Click to enlarge!
