this week at shopping our stash we are paper piecing, which i happen to love. i sort of only realized when i read the challenge that i haven't done it in a while, so it's really nice to have an excuse! i know the "normal" way is to stamp an image multiple times, but sometimes i don't have exactly the right stamp, or it's the wrong size; so i often use clip art, instead. and that's what i did this time. i printed out a few copies of this very fun camera image, divided it into layers and then cut the various bits out of coordinating paper scraps:
i don't have very many rules in life, but one of them is: never cut out JUST ONE of ANYTHING, lol! especially when stapling a few layers together means you can get a lot more result for the same amount of work. plus it gives you a few choices as to which patterned papers you want to use where. in this case i did three layers of each "camera part" and actually wound up with three adorable cameras. want to see the "extras"?
for my finished card, i used seize the sketch #17 which is pretty fabulous, as you can see:
speaking of fabulous, be sure check out the other DT projects at SOS... they are bound to make you excited about making your own paper-pieced card with us this week! ♥
