A Thousand Tiny Pictures

Webster defines "mosaic" as "a surface decoration made by inlaying small pieces of variously colored material to form pictures or patterns." We're all familiar with the mosaic artwork that has been around for centuries ... thousands of tiny colored pieces that make up a picture or design.

I'm sure you have also seen puzzles where the main picture is made up of thousands of tiny pictures. You may have even seen magazine covers doing the same thing. Fascinating concept, to be sure, but so what, right?!

Well, how about having a mosaic picture made using your OWN photos?! Imagine thousands of your own little pictures making up one big picture! What fun. But don't worry, you don't have to come up with thousands of pictures ... just a few will do, and they'll be repeated to create the final "look." All you have to do is decide on the ONE picture that you want as your final result, and then choose a few other pictures that will make up the mosaic look.

The theme can be whatever you want it to be. Being a dog-lover and having lost my canine companion recently, I would think a photo of him would be great ... and I certainly took enough pictures over the years to find some good ones for my mosaic pieces.

Or you could give a picture to your grandparents of the "old family farm" made up of either scenery pictures from over the years or pictures of family members that had lived there. Or you could give a graduation gift to your child or grandchild, having their graduation portrait made up of all their annual school pictures.

This is truly a one-of-a kind gift. Check out what My DaVinci has to offer. Click on the Modern tab across the top of their homepage and then the Photo in Photo tab along the left side. See how creative you can get!

These are SO unique because you can enjoy the main picture, but you can also spend time just locating the smaller pictures and enjoying them, too.
