Tag Tuesday Challenge -- Mosaic


Today's challenge is to create a tag that includes a mosaic of some kind.   It can be the whole tag as mine is or a portion of your tag.  Feel free to expand upon that idea.  It will be fun to see what your creative minds come up with.
A tip that made this easier for me:  I assembled my tiny pieces on a a long piece of packaging tape, sticky side up.   I covered half the length of it, and then when I was done I brought the bottom half of up to cover my mosaic.

Gorgeous tag! This is special - I don't think we have had this theme yet on TT - great challenge!
Thanks!

GREAT idea with the tape... I'll have to 'tuck&file'. ;O) Your so clever!

Lynn Stevens said...

Wow, This one is really creative. I've never tried one like this. I like your packing tape idea.

I love the way you put this together - really gorgeous combination of bits!

The tape idea is a great one. I wonder what would happen if you didn't fold the tape back up, but poured embossing powder on the sticky part and embossed? I wonder if the tape would melt? Might have to try that!

What a neat tag! Great tip on the collage tape technique.

I've had several tags started for the last two challenges and haven't completed one yet! Maybe the third is a charm?

Had to do some research on mosaic techniques for this one. I like the idea of the tape though-I've got to try that on a day I don't have a new set of stamps top ink up!

Your tag is so SWEET! After looking at your tag more closely I see that it really looks like a mosaic but mine ended up being a collage. Oh, well!

I'm a fan of your blog for quite a time and one of my goals for 2011 is to make more tags! So I made a start with mine.
