Day Twelve: “Paper Mosaic”

I had some paper squares left over from last summer’s mosaic project…

…and I had some blank paper with a cool cross from a magazine…

Free and easy and pretty.  I like it.

Making things makes me happy. Making things for free, upcycling, repurposing, and being generally clever makes me even happier.

  1. Do you plan a mosaic out first, or sot of “create as you go”?

    • This one just kind of happened. I knew the colors I had to work with, and an idea of what I wanted to make. A children’s craft I did last summer used clear contact paper adhered to a chipboard frame (like this: http://nurturestore.co.uk/contact-paper-art) with a design underneath to follow. Then, after all the paper squares were placed, I used Mod Podge over the sticky side to seal it and glued black paper to the back. The kids liked that. Some skipped using the design on it and just winged it.
