Words are amazing and powerful things. They can make us laugh, cry, create outrage, or fill our hearts with compassion. Combine words with images and you might just have a masterpiece!
To make the process a little easier, I made a Mosaic Moments Grid Planner sheet. It made it easy to test words for a correct fit. I decided to use our names and some words that describe family.
STEP 1- Create a plan
*Mosaic Moments Grid Plan sheet is available as a FREE Download at snapncrop.com.
STEP 2 – Print letters onto cardstock
Once I had a plan I designed one inch squares, with the letters I needed, and printed them onto cardstock. FREE Download Available. If you don’t have a printer available you could use alphabet stickers, stamps, or handwritten letters.
TYPE TIP: Make sure the letters adequately fill the 1 inch square space. It will result in a more pleasing visual impact.
STEP 3 – (optional) stamp each square.
STEP 4 – (optional) ink edges.
STEP 5 – place letter squares on Mosaic Moments Grid Paper as planned.
STEP 6 – add photos.
I used a couple of 4×6 photos (cut to fit the grid) to block in the larger spaces; but, most were printed as thumbnails – 9 up on a 4×6 sheet.
Using a one inch square punch makes it really easy to create one inch squares out of thumbnail prints.
I love the finished result. Don’t you think this idea will make a fabulous gift? Just change the words & photos to create custom designs for your favorite people, new moms, newly or to-be-weds, sisters, friends, spouse, neighbors…
