Some charities will send out free address labels to help increase awareness of their cause or as a small token in hopes to get you to donate to them. I have accumulated literally hundreds of address labels and although I still enjoy writing letters and sending actual cards to friends and family I know I will never use them all. Being the "collector" that I am, I couldn't bear to dispose of them either, so I decided to use them to create a landscape. 

Step 1:

All you need are the lables, a pencil, a larger piece of paper and a scissor.

Step 2: RED

First I went through the  sheets of address labels and tried to separate them into piles of similar colors.

Step 3: ORANGE

Step 4: YELLOW

Step 5: GREEN

Step 6: BLUE

Step 8: Brown

Step 9: Misc

Step 10: Color Folders

I put all the sheets into color coded folders to make it easier to keep the separate. 

Step 11: Begin

I chose brown paper to use as my base and began by drawing  pencil lines to indicate where I might make my landscape.

Step 12: Sky

I began with the sky

Step 13: Continue

I continued to work my way down the landscape

Step 14: Details

Step 15: Flower Gardens

Step 16: Field of Lavender

Step 17: Beginning of a Bush

Step 18: Autumn Leaves

Step 19: Spring Snow

Step 20: Evergreen Tree on the Hill

Step 21: Finished Bush

Step 22: Done

What a nifty twist on a mosaic look, love it!
That's so awesome! Nice job!

Thank You!
Using a medium for an art project that most of us would normally throw away in our landfills is wonderful. I also LOVE this picture.
Very creative! Excellent job.
