Title Author Description


    Our second challenge for October was to create a mostly mosaic style page on 8.5 x 11 Mosaic Moments Grid paper and mount it onto a 12 x 12 sheet of paper, our choice of pattern or solid.  And we could choose either felt, yarn, thread, twine, or string as embellishments.

     I had never used the 8.5 x 11 paper, and so I had to give this project quite a bit of thought.  I had some pictures of our recent trip to Tennesse and a background paper which I wanted to use.   It seemed I needed a brown grid paper, and I couldn't find any.  Therefore, I created some by cutting down a 12 x 12 sheet.  The whole project went together quickly, and I was very satisfied with the whole look.  The patterned paper was a predesigned page from Close to My Heart, and the colors went well with my pics.

     The letters for "Tennessee" are brown felt and have stitching on them which tied in with the look of stitches on the paper.  I also used a 2012 year striplet from Tami Potter.  It was white, so I antiqued it with some vintage ink.

     This page is going to be the cover sheet for my trip.  I really liked the technique (don't know why I didn't think of it) and will use it again.  By using different pattern papers, the ideas are limitless.

I love the use of the 8.5 x 11 technique. I will try to do that on my next mosaic page. I love CTMH paper & it looks great on this page. The stitching on the letters & paper tie in well together. Great job!

I love how the patterned paper surrounds the beautiful and colorful flowers! Great job!

The pictures of the flowers are wonderful! I'm glad that you were able to put yourself in one of your mosaics. You deserve to be spotlighted after all the great pages you've created!

I love how the stripes on the paper bring out the colors in the flowers and your felt title is fabulous! (I'd love to see a close up shot of the stitching on the felt.)

WOW! What a colorful page! Your paper works so well with the mass of flowers in the forefront of the layout. I LOVE the felt letters you have stitched for the title...did you hand cut them... stitch then cut...or some other neat trick you could share with us? I think having the 2012 striplet sit on top of a portion of the photo is a really nice touch, too. Linda, I'm glad you had a beautiful day in the Smokies, looks like you are on the bi-pass road overlooking Gatlinburg; nice that you isolated the photo of yourself surrounded by 1" tiles. I agree I think this hybrid style of Mosaics works well as a Title page to a large collection of vacation or themed event photos. Well Done!
