Mosaic Art with Tape

mosaic artThe best reason to make this mosaic art is the ease take comes with using tape. Anyone who has tried before to make a mosaic with paper, knows how hard it is to keep things neat and tidy. Working with tape eliminates all that, and just leaves a smooth surface. And all the colored tape that is available these days gives you lots of options too.

MATERIALS
• Recollections black card stock paper
• Decorative craft tape, green, orange and blue
• Scissors

DIRECTIONS
1. Pull off 6″ or 7″ strips of green tape and cut into angled pieces. Start by applying green across the bottom of the paper. Leave spaces in between.
2. Pull off 6″ or 7″ strips of orange tape and cut into angled pieces. Make a circle and fill. Leave spaces in between.
3. Pull off 6″ or 7″ strips of blue tape and cut into angled pieces. Fill in the background with the blue. Leave spaces in between.
