Funky Mosaic Mini Canvases

Hi ya, I know I haven't blogged in a week, purely because of being ill, but after 4.5 weeks the good news is antibiotics are working and I am feeling so much better :-).  Anyway today I am popping on to enter the Miniature Art over on the Paperartsy Blog and I have made paper mosaic tiles (1cm square) on 7cmby7cm canvases, plus on 1inch stampboard, I also found 2 pack of hoarded PA Crackly tissue paper so I also used that.  It all came from playing with my gelli plate and I loads of left over brayer card (which was on PA cardstock and crackly tissue paper), all of the paint I had used was Fresco (product list at the bottom of the post), mainly new colours which I was messing around with.  

I left them as is, I can't decide if to add words or if to leave them just like
this, bright and colourful.

These are what I started with and still have loads left lol.

Now this flower was using my stencil brush with my PA stencil, the other flower
on the other canvas was done first but I couldn't be bothered to get up
and grab my stencil brush, I soon changed that for this one as it never works
any other way for me lol. 

I did add black around the squares using my stabilo all pencil but I didn't like it so
luckily I managed to wipe it all off.















Right I better go and enter as it finishes soon.  I have really enjoyed playing with all the small squares and definitely think I might have another go.  Thank you so much for visiting.
Happy Art :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx

You must have a lot of patience Kezzy working with all those tiny squares, but what a wonderful result! Love the combination of all the glorious colours too.
Glad you're on the mend now, take care xxx

Fantastic colours! Personally I wouldn't add any text, especially on the flowers. I can't believe you punched, placed and stuck all these fiddly squares... I don't think I would have stayed the course.

These are gorgeous - I love the colours, you must have been so much patience stamping out each one individually. They are fabulous little works of art. Thanks for visiting me earlier,
Diana

I'm in love with your mosaic canvases, Kerry - what a wonderful idea, and beautifully executed. The colours are just lovely. Fantastic! So sorry to hear you're still making your way back to normal - I think I'm just about there now (haven't made it to the post office yet though!).
