I've been stewing on 365 Cards' challenge # 198 for a few days now. The challenge for the day was to create a mosaic. Now you can do this a couple of ways. Nice clean cuts of paper to create even shapes OR lots of different shapes, sizes and patterns. Either way you choose to do it, piece together a mosaic on your card.
I simply went to my scrap bin and cut approximate 2 cm squares and pasted them on as a random background for my popped Silhouette-cut sentiment. I really like the way it turned out - and just know I'll be using this technique in the future (my mum's a quilter, and I think she'd appreciate the quiltiness of the look)
I'd list the papers... but I simply don't remember the manufacturer for each of these. I cut up 14 different random scraps.
As hard a time as I had when I read mosaic, 365's next challenge made me laugh out loud. Seriously, Pam must be working overtime to try to stump us! It's awesome!!! They're called challenges for a reason, I suppose.
Challenge # 199 - Shape Up.... and today's shape is....a hexagon! That should be the dominating shape on your card.
Tammy's example was truly inspiring, as were some of my co-participants. I'm glad I had the luxury of finishing my card late - I really needed the inspiration! I decided on a little boys card - inspired by a set of stickers my daughter, Allison, gave me. The hexagonal card with a blue hexagonal cog - and a friendly robot saying hello. Kind of a fun boy card, I think.
