It's been a very busy week here and I must admit I haven't had much time for blogging this week - so I'm sorry if I haven't managed to get around to all your gorgeous blogs this week. I also wanted to say hello and welcome to my lovely followers, who are climbing steadily :)
Well, if it's Friday again it must be time for another challenge over at the Polkadoodles challenge blog. This week our Claire would like to see your 'Paper Piecing' projects, including the use of newspaper somewhere on the project.
I decided to take this literally and actually use pieces of paper from my stash that were left over from previous projects. Here's what I made ...
I made my own tag from a piece of left over kraft card and topped it with some gorgeous brown text paper (from the 'Pen & Paper Circle 3' CD) that I found in my stash. The edges are inked with my fav Walnut Stain distress ink. The flowers are from the 'Candy Doodles' CD and the large one is cut from some more scraps of paper with the two smaller flowers cut from newspaper. I added little co-ordinating buttons for the centres. The cute little owl is printed from the 'Sugar Birdies' CD and I paper pieced his tummy with some more newspaper and gave his some funky googly eyes for a fun element. A piece of ribbon, a couple of distress stain ink splats, some flat backed pearl accents and a 'Just for You' sentiment (which is also printed from the Candy Doodles CD) finish off the project.
Don't forget to pop over to the blog for some more great inspiration from my fab teamies.
