Cut A Notch
6 photos used
Today I decided I was finally going to make a page with those photos I took back in 2010 at the MoMA in New York City. When I started laying out my page design I decided I wanted to create a mosaic using the "city view" image I had taken from our hotel room.
I wanted to use two 3.25 inch wide photos under the city scape; however, I also wanted the title to be the same width as the city scape image. My decision to locate the title right under the mosaic cut city scape gave me a reason to do a bit of "fancy" cutting.
Notice the 3.25 inch wide photos on the left and right of the page each have a square "notch" cut out of them to accomodate the title. (I have wanted to try this for awhile and it was easier than I expected using the Mosaic Moments Cutting Mat.) I simply ligned up the photo with the grid on the mat, cropped it to a 3.25 x 5.5 inch piece to fit the grid paper. Then I cut a 1.125 (1 1/8) inch square out of the top corners as shown above.
Example – the "soup can" image has a notch cut from the top left corner like this:
"MoMA" by Tami Potter, was created on Mosaic Moments™ 12×12 Pewter Grid Paper.
