You know I love mosaics. I am fascinated by how the tiny bits fit and flow together to create larger images. I have taken hundreds of pictures of mosaics over the years.
I have even made some! The side table we use everyday is made from upcycled plates, a big broken bowl, and floor tiles from a building that was torn down, years ago, in Salinas.
But mosaics made from tile or plates are very heavy, and tend to be large. Good for a garden, maybe. But that’s an idea for later.
But mosaics made of paper could be smaller and lighter. And since one of the things I like best about mosaics is using ’damaged goods’ to another purpose, why not recycle some of my less-than-successful pictures into one?
I also had scraps from trimming a large piece down for cards…
Maybe they could work together? Because of the hot orange, I started with a starburst idea.
Could it look even better with the blue and black? I tried. Oh, yeah.
Continuing with the blue and into the green, I like it better and better.
And though I can see ways I could have done it better, I like this a lot. I think I will be playing with this some more.
