Mosaic



Well what a lovely day, and the sun hasn't been shining - but I was a winner over at 365 Cards and am over the moon.
And their Day 198 Challenge :Make a Mosaic is fabulous. I knew I had the perfect paper for this which took me a wee while to find and then I knew the perfect sketch which was over at Mojo Monday 104 because I needed a sketch with a circle.

Ingredients :-

Mosaic Paper - Paper Adventures ARTextures 'Cosmic Rays' and I cut into a 12 x 12 for this circle.
Plain paper - Basic Grey 'Sugared'
Other paper pieces out of my bits box
'Jar' Image - Clarity Stamps
Brown Card - Bazzill Bling
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black
Base card and Square brass brads from my stash

I can't believe I actually cut into a 12 x 12 just for a small circle. But when a piece of paper fits the bill I daresay it happens. Am I the only person that has a huge pile of 12 x 12 which is occasionally taken out, looked at, stroked, drooled over and then put away again. :D I tend to buy 6 x 6 pads for all my cardmaking so 365 you are honoured that I cut this up for you. :)

I love the look of this card for a change and have left it without a sentiment until I need to use it.

For a minute there Jen I thought you had done that mosaic yourself lol but who cares it is beautiful and no you aren't the only one who has a huge pile of 12 x 12's and takes them out to drool over them and look at them and stroke them lol I do that all the time and I thought I was weird now I know I'm not hehehehe. I don't have any 6x6 pads as they are hard to get for me so I am always cutting into 12x12's. Great card Jenny.

I feel sooooo much better about myself knowing you did NOT cut all those little bits of paper by hand! LOL That is one amazing card no matter what!

And paper hoard...please! I buy 4 of every sheet just so I can hoard some! I've tried to get better and only buy 2 sheets of what I love and just 1 sheet if am just buying it for cards...but it's so hard to not grab extra sheets!
