Week 4 – MosaiCraft

So last night I caught up my MosaiCraft from Friday as I was a little tied up with Scouts and didn’t have time to do any.  There was 1 colour left of the baseplate so I did a bonus “square” as well to complete the baseplate.

That takes my total to 7 out of 9 baseplates complete so I will need to start thinking about a backing board and frame soon to put it all together so that it can go alongside our “Exploding Tardis” photo from the Van Gogh episode of Dr Who.  So I guess I will be starting the next baseplate later.

Look out later for the final update on my progress against my January Goals.

Once again – thanks for reading 🙂

Week 3 – MosaiCraft

So over the weekend I did find time to do some MosaiCraft (I struggle to do any on a Friday Night due to being out at Explorer Scouts) so tend to catch up with 2 on a Saturday.  Due to only having 1 colour left in the last square I decided on Sunday that I would do a bonus one to finish the baseplate. Plate

For those who have never come across MosaiCraft before but are looking to do something new I can highly recommend it.  MosaiCraft is a cross between mini-mosaic and paint by numbers.  You have a printed Pattern which you put your clear baseplate over this acts like the paint by numbers and tells you where to put which plastic Pixel. These individual Baseplates then clip together to form an overarching pixel.  There are a vast array of kits you can get of various sizes to give some brilliant pixels but also you can get some custom kits manufactured from your own images – I am looking forward to doing this once I can settle on a picture design.

The kit that I am currently doing is a 9 baseplate kit Van Gogh starry kit.  I now have 6 baseplates complete with 3 left to go – but it is coming together nicely.  I didnt have time to do any last night … so I have one square to catch up on.
