Challenge # 6

For this challenge I needed a page that only had one picture. This was difficult because I usually like my layouts to be photo intensive. I went through the scrapbook that I have been working on for most of this challenge and I found a page that had a single picture of the bride.Original photo I had already chosen the background paper and then I decided to trim down two of the sides by an inch so that I could attach it to a dark pink piece of card stock.

This challenge is about creating a mosaic. I turned the photo over and placed it on my self-healing mat, which also has measurements on it. I took a ruler and a pen and very lightly made one inch marks vertically and horizontally until I had 24 boxes. I then numbered each box 1 – 24, starting in the top right corner and working to the bottom left corner. Numbers

Using my paper trimmer, I cut the photo along the lines I had drawn and placed each piece, face up on my work space.

I then took my small square punch and used the same color paper as the background to cut out squares that were slightly larger than the photo pieces.Laid out
Once all the pieces were glued to their backing, I placed them on the paper to determine where they would look the best.glued down

The next step was to put the mosaic together. I glued all of the parts to the background paper. Here is what the mosaic looked like right after I glued it down. mosaic close up

Since the mosaic was on the left side of the layout, something needed to go on the right. I chose a sticker of the word “Bride” where each letter contained black and white roses. Because it was going on to a black background, I thought that using a white gel pen and faux stitch around each letter would make them stand out. It also matched the stitching that I did on the dark pink border paper.

Here are some pictures of the final layout:
