Putting together a photo mosaic

My second creative project of the week was creating a photo mosaic. I had to look up how to do it because I had never created one before. I got some inspiration from a past student who created one using a program called AndreaMosaic. You can see his creation and some links to other helpful resources here. I followed his example and downloaded AndreaMosaic. I was super easy to figure out and pretty quick at creating a mosaic. I did try several different patterns to get one I liked. I wasn’t quite so excited with the full on mosaic look, so I took that photo and the original and masked them together using Photoshop. This way I could bring out the subject’s eyes and create a little vignette on the whole image. This is the final piece:
