Paper Mosaic from a Drawing
Jul 8th, 2010 by Craftylocks

There are lots of ways to create a mosaic from paper, this technique is one of the simplest.

I love the effect of paper mosaics, I think the little gaps between the pieces of paper give the picture a great vibrancy. It is one of the paper crafts for children that has many routes to success. This version is easy as you can work with any picture the child wants to draw.

To give it the mosaic effect, rule up some squares in the background of the picture and color them in with alternate colors.

Once the whole thing is colored in, cut a the picture into the squares you have ruled up. Work with a row at a time to make it easier to keep track of where you are up to. Glue the squares onto your backing paper which can be any color you wish.

I like black as it gives a definite, dramatic edge to each square.
