Painted Paper Mosaic Tutorial
Here is the colorful painted paper mosaic that I made last night!
1. Gather a pile of colorful painted scraps.
2. Cut out shapes of different kinds and glue them as close together as possible. Try to cut and place them so that they fill in the space without major gaps. It's like putting together a puzzle!
Cut out more and more shapes from scrapbook papers, other patterned papers, painted scraps you have lying in your stash and fill your page.
Here is the page full of cut and pasted shapes.
3. Fill in any remaining spaces with watercolor paints, colored pencils or markers. I made sure to leave small outlines of white between the shapes.
4. Another way to add details and embellishment is to take a white-out pen and draw on top of the shapes. I added dots and doodles.
Here is the finished artwork again:
