You will need the glass from 2 discount store picture frames.  Chose any size desired.

Place one of the glass pane over card stock or paper.  I have used red in this example to better define the size of the glass.

If you are proficient cutting glass than cut glass pieces in shapes  and place on the glass in the desired location.  If you do not cut glass small square pieces of glass can be purchased at craft and discount stores.  You can also purchase  pre-cut glass pieces from stained glass outlets.  Unless you have experience cutting glass I do not recommend that you start without appropriate instruction.  This example shows a cut glass picture.

Once you have laid out your entire image get some glass glue from the discount store and glue each small piece of glass to the glass backing.  The glass glue will dry clear.
mosaic6
Mix tile grout in your desired color according to manufacturer’s instructions.
mosaic7
Apply liberally to the picture covering all crevices.  Grout is corrosive so please be sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for safety.
mosaic8
With a damp sponge remove the extra grout.  Let the grout dry and then remove the remaining film off of the glass with a damp sponge.
mosaic9
Glue second pane of glass in place and let dry.  There are several ways to finish the edges.  The easiest way is to purchase decorative duct tape and tape the edges in place.  This example shows a decorative green tape that was purchased at a discount store.
