My group of demonstrators was scheduled to meet on Saturday, but Mother Nature had other plans. Due to the snow, we had to reschedule our meeting to next week. That was okay, because it gave me a little more time to fine-tune my technique demonstration. My presentation is on the Faux Mosaic technique.
This technique is great for using up small scraps of paper, and who doesn't have a ton of scraps lying around? You start by cutting your scraps into small pieces. These can be any size or shape that you like.
I used the sticky pages (Item # 114300, $6.95) and cut the 12"x12" sheets down to a more manageable size. You'll need to cut a piece of cardstock the same size as your sticky piece, and adhere them together. Peel the red backing off and your ready to start.
Place your scrap pieces onto the sticky card stock. You can do this randomly or follow a pattern--anything goes! Once you have placed all your pieces, sprinkle glitter or embossing powder on the card stock, filling in the gaps. If you are using embossing powder, heat until melted.
I'll share my other card samples with you later this week. Here are the supplies used on this card:
