This past week I started working on some pieces with mosaics. Mosaics can be made with just about any paper you've got around. In my case all of my tiles are my own paste paper designs. Each sheet of mosaic tiles that I'm showing you in this post are one inch to quarter inch pieces of paper put onto a clear sheet of laminate. I think they are quite lovely just as they are but each of these sheets of mosaics has a future as something else in a more finished form.
This pink and orange sheet of inch by 1/2 inch tiles has black "grout".
This is the same sheet of tiles but with white "grout".
The tiles on this sheet vary from one inch to a quarter inch.
Another one with a little bit of everything. All the tiles on this one are blue paste paper scraps.
This sheet is made up of quarter inch square pieces.
