Runway Inspired Challenge #139


Time for a Runway Inspired Challenge. This we have a fun interesting look:

My first thought was Mosaic. So I decided to use a mosaic technique that I had learned a long time ago. I searched for “mosaic pattern” and found the image of a sun/sunflower. Using Photoshop I took colors from the dress to print out solid blocks of color on letter paper, mainly because I needed something lighter than card stock to create the mosaic. Here is the card:

RIC 139

How to do the mosaic:

  • apply glue on a small area of the pattern, I used a glue pen for precision.
  • using a stylus press down a corner of colored paper and tear away.
  • repeat the process. I occasionally used my scissors to cut straight edges and aligned them along the edges of the pattern.


Since some of you did not completely understand the description above, I decided to do a short video on how I did it. I hope it will help, if you can see it through my terrible lighting conditions! Sorry about the glare throughout the video.

I won’t lie, this took a while, but I was determined to finish it. This technique would be more practical with either smaller/ scattered areas to cover or large designs where you could use something blunter than a stylus to tear away bigger pieces.

I hope you will get a chance to play along! Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp, and the winner will get a $15 gift certificate to their online store.

Please visit the Runway blog to see what the rest of the team came up with! I assure you, you will in for a treat!
