Make mine mosaic…

2 Sep

mosaic flower

I took a photo of a flower, cut it into 1″ pieces with the help of a ruled cutting mat (shown beneath the white border of the photo,) and pasted the pieces mosaic-style onto a sheet of paper, leaving some white space in between each piece. It’s an interesting way to present a photograph or your own artwork in an art journal or scrapbook, or to make a card or give as a gift.   You’ll notice I could have been more careful pasting the squares but I was just experimenting and having some fun. I have to remind myself that “Perfection is the enemy of good.” I don’t remember who said that but they are important words for me to remember.
