Friday's Crop - Mosaic Mentality

The mosaic technique is an obsessive way of using strip of decorative papers you've not thrown away all these years. It's also a way of reusing birthday and Christmas cards, calendars, and wall paper samples that were too pretty to throw out. There are no rules, nor is there one correct way to assemble them, all you need are your papers, some double-stick sheets and some time for fun.

The paper is cut into strips of varying widths and laid down around a photo or central image, interspersed with Mizuhiki. One can even use tiny glass beads or metallic flakes in place of some of the paper strips.

Please bring to class a photo (3.5" x 4.5"), scissors, craft knife paper trimmer and metal ruler. We will provide the paper, double-stick sheets, and Mizuhiki paper cords.

Please arrive on time at 9:30am.

Cost: $10
