Queen Isabella of Spain

My daughter's class had a Medieval Day at school last month.  All the kids had to pick a character and dress as them for the day.  In addition, they had to make a written report and art project of their character.  My daughter  was Queen Isabella of Spain.  My mom sewed her dress.  It came out beautifully.

Sami printed out the painting below of Queen Isabella and then drew a graph layout on top. 

Next she drew the Queen on a large poster board using the grid squares as a guide.  Then she glued hundreds of 1/2 inch squares on top to make this paper mosaic.

Here is a close up.  I think it turned out fabulous!
