You did it! A mosaic of photos

Many of us have way too many photos, but we like to create fancy, beautiful layouts that often feature only one photo. At this rate, we'll never get all the photos scrapped. 

I have talked many times about how to create a second matching page without all the fuss. All you need to do is repeat the background and a few small embellishments and plaster it with lots of photos. The time has come to give this a try in class. I have 9 photos on this double layout and I have cut them up like a mosaic. The idea isn't new, but we haven't done this in years, so let's get scrapping. 

Please choose photos with a "neutral" background, like nature, city sites or backgrounds we can cut out. It's best to choose photos that have a similar background / colour scheme, for a unified look. If in doubt, make it black and white.

Maybe you're not a fan of lots of photos? In that case, you can either use a lot less photos on the left page or simply only do the right page and make it an easy single layout. It kind of started out like one anyway.

The papers we're using have a pretty mint green colour with black and white (the mint green proved tricky to capture in a photo). It is actually a gorgeous neutral colour that will go with a lot of different colours. Hint: The little rows of houses make this the perfect paper range for sight-seeing photos. 

We will also have a go at painting 7 Creek Rd chipboard arrows with the mica mists to get a pretty mint shimmer on a dark backing. Again, that was hard to capture on camera, but it's there in all it's shiny glory.

You will need:
- a stack of photos
- a cutter
- Dimensional Magic or Glossy Accents

Classes are held at Scrappin' With Style @ TJ's
Monday at 9:30am
Tuesday at 10am & 6pm

My original inspiration for this layout came from this one:

I found it on Pinterest (see here).
