Scrapbooking Technique: Mosaic

Good morning!!! Karen here with today's post! We have a very cool video tutorial for you from YouTube's "Scrapbook.com" These are actually a lot of fun to do, but make sure you have time to sit and put it all together. Check out this awesome video!

I have actually tried this technique twice and loved the outcome on both pics. Of course, when I did these back in 2009 , there were no plastic grids that there are today. Today you can buy actual templates which make this much easier. I also learned to be mindful of faces/heads as well. I had to draw the 1 x 1 grids on these pages myself. A lot of cutting, but love the outcome!!
