Tuesday Throwdown #7

Hey everyone, happy Tuesday!  The challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week is Mosaics.  This is my favorite challenge so far - I love to create mosaics.  I actually created two projects for this week.

This card is unusual for me.  I usually make A2 or 6"x6" cards.  I've never made one this shape before, but I am thrilled with how it turned out. 

Close up of the mosaics:

Patterned paper by Miss Elizabeth's
All stamps by Sherrod Studio
Coloring with Distress inks

This is the second project I did for this week.  I absolutely love the look of photo mosaics for scrapbook layouts.  I had the perfect pictures of my bridesmaids and I (and our bouquets).

Amazing work Lauren, but you are much braver than me! I did not like cutting up my images at all, and could NEVER do it to photos! Those LOs are sure awesoem though...you looked beautiful.
