Bling It On!
So, I saw a layout similar to this, but it wasn't a mosaic. The layout just spoke to me and I knew I could do it as a mosaic. The piece that had been my inspiration had stitching around each photograph and I knew I wasn't up for all that! But, I decided to use Stickles and bling this layout up. By using a second sheet of the same paper, I layer a second layer of the waves and the seagulls on the upper right with dimensional adhesive squares. I also traced the existing wave paper with color-matched Stickles to make it pop. Lastly, I added some die-cut seagulls in a couple of other places to tie it all together.
The 1" squares on the border are alternated photographs of seagulls, pelicans and the kids, interspersed with pics of sand and colored paper squares.
