Mosaic Monday – Around the Yard

I thought I’d try my hand at making a mosaic with photos I’ve taken around my front and back yards this summer. I used Picasa to do this.

After selecting the photos I wanted to use I copied them to a separate folder. After opening Picasa I selected the photos and clicked COLLAGE and kept moving the photos around until I liked the composition and then saved it.


Here is another photo-collage I did with PhotoScape using instructions from Laurie at Bargain Hunting and Chatting With Laurie. These are photos of garden containers around the yard.

When time permits I've got to read up some more and practice making some of the interesting mosaic patterns I see on so many blogs.

Join Mary at Little Red House for more mosaic compositions.
