~ laura ponts and mosaics


Remember the mosaics? My followers from back in the day will remember the mosaics. I used to spend hours putting them together with photos from Pinterest. Check them out here.

These days, I spend that mosaic-making time on instagram. I am so taken with Laura Lopez, (@lauraponts) and her sensational food mosaics. That's what I call them anyway... Laura is a food stylist extraordinaire, and I think I missed my calling. What a dream job it would be ~ putting together mosaics like these...










The above images are all from her instagram account. (here) Literally, each post is prettier than the last! Laura has a new book out, Arte Foodie... 

I just love the little masterpieces she creates with food. The color, the balance, the symmetry... they definitely bring to mind the mosaics I used to put together. And the banners! Hours I spent on these things... HOURS I tell you. 


















Banners...


  
























I do love Pinterest. What a wonderful invention that was. I adore having access to such gorgeous imagery.. organized beauty at my fingertips!

And instagram has been such a great source of inspiration. I love sharing beautiful images!
