Mosaic Butterfly | Shannon Allor

Hello friends!  It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this sweet mixed media project!

Are you looking to unleash your creativity and create a beautiful piece of art? Learn how to create a butterfly mosaic mixed media project that will leave you in awe of your own artistic abilities.

What materials do you need?

To start your butterfly mosaic project, you will need a sturdy background, liquid adhesive, white gesso or paint and your Mixed Media Kit.

How to design your butterfly mosaic

I used white gesso and a bit of the paint to create a quick and messy background.  Then, sketch out your butterfly design on the base using a pencil. I used a scrap piece of paper folded in half.  I find it much easier to do one side for symmetry.


I used all three Prima paints on a piece of sturdy cardstock.  Set it aside to dry.  Once dry, you can tear it up into nice little pieces to act as your tiles.


I had so much fun designing this butterfly.  I used liquid adhesive to tack all of my paper pieces down.  

Now it’s time to finish this project up.  I used the Modeling Powder for my cement.  It looks so much like the real thing!

Add a simple sentiment and then your project is complete!

Happy crafting!
