Rock Art

The beaches we went to were loaded with the most beautiful river rocks and I had a ball playing with them. I started with this heart on the first day. When I went back it a few days later it was still there and next to it someone had written their name in rocks. It was neat to think that someone was inspired by me.

This swirly tree was fun. I have to tell you that it is so meditative playing with the rocks. It brought me back to my mosaic days...yes I was a mosaic artist once upon a time.

The swirls on this big stone were made by scratching other rocks in different color onto the surface. My son Liam found some charred wood from a bon fire that made excellent charcoal to finish it off.

Simple and fun flowers.

OK, this is one crazy looking face but fun nonetheless.

Stacking rocks while watching the kids play. Ahhh, that's vacation!


  1. Hi Michelle! Those rock designs are so awesome!

  2. Hi Michelle, I found you red stone heart on Pinterest and love it. As I was in Budleigh Salterton in south England and at the wandering (sand) dune near Leba (Polen), I love Pebbles those stone you used for the heart:-)
    Do you mind to tell me, at which beach you've been??
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Gabriele,
      Those rocks are from a beach on Lake Superior. We were on vacation in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the beaches were loaded with big, beautiful stones. I hope that helps. Have a great day!
