Mosaic Tile Flower Garden Wall

My back yard is at a slope and I had a cement wall put in. This made it easier to walk in the back to my avairies. When the cement wall was in, it seem bare so I decided to add some color. I collected left over tile from friends and family and bought some at garage sales. I then decided to create a underwater scene. Since Im no artist I thought fish would be the easiest to do. Piece by piece like a puzzle I create this world that no others had seen before. 50 feet all together. I then added a flower bed in front. This now is the conversation piece to my little get away.
Up the stairs to my bird avaries, This is my pieceful get away.

    Hi Teri,

    I have a vertical cement wall that is ugly. How did you adhere the mosaic pieces to your wall without them falling off before the adhesive dried? What adhesive did you use? I live in Battle ground, WA surrounded by an old growth forest, so the wall gets a lot of shade and is often wet.

    Thanks for any advice you may offer,

    Fantastic! Did you use quick set concrete or tile mastic?

    U say you're not an artist--well I think u are! I haven't a clue how to even begin to do such a thing. Beautiful!

      Thank you I wanted to make my wall with different animals, but I knew if I even tried you wouldn't know what they were. So i did fish instead. Can't draw worth a beans.
