A Paper Mosaic Mask

I had fun experimenting with this Gelli-Plate print which is the same pattern as the prints I showed you last week, here: Making Masks!

This one is a little different as I cut out the negative features of the face for the print:


Next, I added patterns with Posca paint pens, color pencils and a Uniball Signo white gel pen to create a design for my mask:


I finished by cutting my paper into squares and slightly shifting the image before gluing it onto another piece of paper:


My paper mosaic mask was a fun surprise!  What do you think?

Wishing you a happy Monday!

Cheers! 🙂

  1. I’m enjoying your mask series Jill. The mosaic gives a whole new dimension to think about. You have inspired me.

  3. This looks great, Jill! But I must admit, also a little scary to me… 😊 Maybe it is because of the empty eyes masks have…

    • Hi Ann, I can see your perspective about the eyes. ☺️ I haven’t really thought about it like that, I see it more as something you might wear. I also see it as something someone could hide behind to mask their true feelings. 😊

      • Do you know the movie “The Mask” with Jim Carrey? He is a nice and rather shy guy (at least I remember so) and when he puts on this mask he found somewhere, he turns into a completely different man with rather strange super powers… It´s a fun movie 😊 I think in Voodoo and ancient cultures masks play an important part too. It´s an exciting theme – but also kind of scary… 😉 Anyway, they are sure a great subjects for painting, and yours are wonderful with all their colors and patterns!❤️


  4. Wow, this is way cool Jill in all versions! Question: does your white Uniball gel pen cover reliably? I have some white gel pens that don’t always work, on some things they just sort of fade out, I’m looking for one that’s more of a paint pen I guess, any suggestions? Thanks,
