I came across this personalized art idea at Under the Table and Dreaming and had to immediately make it for myself.  I used pictures from Leo Reynold’s collection to create my personal family print.  It only took an hour and most of that time was spent looking through all the different pictures available.

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.
