DIY Paper Mosaic Collage
May 25th, 2012
We finally finished our Paper Mosaic Collage! If you are wondering what to do with all those bits of painted paper that pile up, this is a great idea to use them up. Oona did the initial drawing and I added to it a bit and she was also my cutting assistant. It was not difficult at all and a lot of fun…just time-consuming, but we worked on it a little at a time. If you want to make one too, here’s how:
1. Do your simple line drawing of the design on the paper in marking pen.
2. Cut up the bits of one color of painted paper at a time and keep the different colors in separate sandwich bags for future use.
3. Using a glue stick, fill in one area at a time, pasting the bits of paper. It’s like coloring in with the paper bits.
That’s it. Have fun and do let me know if you attempt this. I would love to do a gallery of these so if you send me a photo of your finished Paper Mosaic, I will credit each creator!
