Create a mosaic look by adhering tiny paper pieces to your paper.
- Cardstock (Hero Arts Layering Paper in Pine, Grass & Celadon used
- Mod Podge, or other liquid adhesive
- Outline Stamp Image (Hero Arts K5628 Circle Ornament Tree used
- Permanent Ink (Ranger Archival Ink used here)
Step 1Create paper mosaic "tiles" by trimming paper into small squares of various sizes.
Step 2Mark an outline on base paper of the general area to cover with mosaic.
Step 3Begin the mosaic by using a paintbrush to apply a small amount of Mod Podge to the cardstock and lining up the paper squares.
Work in a small area at a time as the thin coat of Mod Podge can dry rather quickly.
Step 4Continue to add paper tiles until mosaic is complete. Cover with a top coat of Mod Podge. Allow to dry thoroughly.
Step 5Stamp image with permanent ink, being careful not to smear the image on the glossy surface.
Step 6Trim image and complete the card.
Instead of stamping, die-cut shapes from the mosaic.
