  2. Before beginning to glue, try things in different positions to get an idea of what will look just right for you.


     
  3. Make sure your most important pieces will fit.  The base layer will likely not be seen in the final version, so hold back the best stuff.
     
  4. The second layer will be the larger pieces.Stop and look around the room now, did you miss anything cool that would work well on this piece?


     
  5. The final layer will be smaller pieces and fill-ins.  Don’t stop until it’s just right!
