This is what I created:
I opened a PowerPoint presentation and set the page settings to be 8 x 8. If your name is longer you will probably want your page set to 8 x 10. Then I inserted the letters, numbers, and shapes into the slide. I saved it as a PDF so I can take it and have it printed out. I'll post pictures of it framed this evening.
I also found this great website called Big Huge Labs where you can make your own mosaic art with personal photos and photos found online. I think my next project will be a mosaic art print of Connor's first and second year. You can also make puzzles and other fun products of pictures. Check it out if you get a chance.
Please share your personal mosaic art. Leave a comment and link back to your blog. I'd love to take a look.
