Mosaic for me is an assemblage from tiny little bits. Like breaking something down to the very elemental of it and create it again as a united entity. At Journal 52 this week we need to get our inspiration from mosaics. So once I read that great sentiment from an Indian Guru (sorry don’t remember name): life is a mosaic of pleasure and pain. It’s true, our life is fragments of happiness and sadness; success and failure; acceptance and rejection.
I had a start with some scrap collage, it’s a sort of mosaic as well.
Then I added some colour (ecoline) and stamping (Prima Cigarbox).
Next I added some stitches, it’s also a way to assemble things. And my main image as a mosaic (texture paste with acrylic).
And finally came my text, some cambric and lace, some embellishments and copper glass glitter. The bottom of the page asked for some doodling so I made a nice mosaic line.
I am sharing my spread with Joural 52.
