“Flickr Favs” Mosaic
Created with Flickr.com photos from the following photographers
Inspired by a post on Mitsy’s blog this morning ( the fabulously creative Artmind on Etsy) I decided to have another go at making a mosaic. Using this tool and also a colour picker tool that she suggested.
One of the really lovely aspects to Etsy is the ability to curate your own little showcase of items that other makers on Etsy have created. I find them soothing to create – almost meditative. To get an official treasury you have to look at the lists , see when some are due to expire and then try to be around at the right time. But you don’t need to be an Etsy seller to create them , anyone with an account can do so. If you don’t get hold of a treasury or you want to prepare something in advance then you can also use the Poster Tool. This is a fantastic way to compose and rearrange your collection to your hearts content.
Of course another side to Treasuries is that it is always a pleasure to find that one of your own designs has made it into someone else’s collection. I was delighted to find that I was featured in two treasuries today. They only stay active for a couple of days so I have included screen shots of them, but for the next couple of days you can click on the links and see the items more closely.
