TLC407 ~ Paper Mosaic ~ (12/10/12)

Today I am welcoming a Guest Hostess (even though I am posting) to the TLC - my fab friend, Libby Hickson! Libby {aka stampinlibby} has an awesome technique to share with you that looks like so much fun - and the result is so cool!


It's called PAPER MOSAIC and here are the instructions per Libby:

1. Choose patterned papers you wish to use & cut into small squares.
2. Apply a small amount of Mod Podge to your base cardstock with a paintbrush - work in small areas at a time so it doesn't dry too quickly.
3. Attach your mosaic squares to the Mod Podge. Add more Mod Podge and repeat.
4. After all squares have been placed, cover entire area with another layer of Mod Podge. Set aside to dry.
5. Once dry, stamp your image in permanent black ink (I used Ranger Archival) and trim.

No Mod Podge? Try Adhesive Sheets!
If you have other substitutions that work, share them in the thread.
You do want your work to have a finished top, though, rather than just having individual pieces of glued paper.


Libby's sample: Mosaic Angel
