1. Collect free sample colors from department stores or paint stores.
Choose a variety of shades. For example, if one of the colors to be used it’s yellow choose as many different variations of yellow ranging from the lightest yellow to darkest one.
2. Pre cut your free color samples into 1″ squares or smaller (this step is optional if you prefer you can cut as you go). Keep in mind that this little squares don’t have to be of a perfect measurement. They can be re cut to fit a specific area later on.
3. Use your picture frame insert as a template to cut the poster board so that it can fit into the picture frame. Following the manufactures instructions to transfer the sunflower pattern to the poster board.
4. Start gluing your colors with Elmer’s glue. Do small sections at the time as your schedule allows you to. Paper mosaic can be a little time consuming but it is cost effective and a very beautiful form of art.
5. Frame your Art.
