The concept of using mosaic is a scrapbooking idea is not new but it is a fun in the way to add a new element to your scrapbooking layouts. To create a mosaic element on your page, first decide how large you would like the mosaic to be then find a suitable photo. It is best if your photo only has one key element on your first attempt. For example photos of a single item are much easier to scrapbook than a complicated photo with many different focal points.
Cut a piece of card stock to the desired finished size of the mosaic of the mosaic and decide what size photo blocks you are creating. For the example I used 1” blocks. Cut your blocks and carefully adhere to your cardstock. You want there to be an equal spacing of cardstock around each block.
There are several options to creating a mosaic. Here are a few fun ideas to try. Create a mosaic with a single photo. Use a scenery photo in your mosaic and replace blocks with cardstock or patterned paper of the same size. You can also strategically place a larger photo block within your layout. For example cut the larger blocks to be equal to 4 smaller blocks including the space you need to leave between the blocks. This takes come careful cutting but looks great.
Hint if you do a mosaic of a person or object you want to be clear when viewed after it is cut and adhered down use smaller spacing between the blocks.Find another great scrapbooking idea here.
