Faux Mosaic Technique

Published by under General | Feb 01 2009

Today we have a card that features the Faux Mosaic technique which I learnt from watching a Stampin’ Up! DVD for demos called “Workshop Wows”. I just had to try it! You can’t tell from the photo, but in between the mosaic pieces is sparkling Dazzling Diamonds glitter – it really shimmers in the light.

The technique is created by first taking a piece of adhesive-backed paper (such as sticker paper). Peel off the backing paper, and carefully place your pieces of paper ’tiles’ – yes, this is a great one for using up all those tiny pieces of paper you’ve been saving!

Next, sprinkle gold or silver embossing powder over the sticker paper – it will adhere to the gaps between the tiles. Heat emboss for an amazing effect, then trim the piece as desired and use to embellish your cards or scrap projects. Or instead of embossing powder, use glitter as I have for this one.

It certainly is a Wow IRL (in real life).  I made this one for a very talented Stampin’ Up! demo and gorgeous lady…  Happy birthday Juliana!

    Simone this is absolutely gorgeous, much nicer than on the video, great that you can see the potential, and you haven’t even got an accent. Big Happy Birthday Wishes to Julianna.
