Paper Piecing, Give it a Whirl

What a week, I have been busy moving my scraproom from our spare bedroom to a new room in our almost finished basement. I will post pictures of my new space another day when I have finished setting it up. Right now I am making cards on my dining room table while the stairs to the basement are being varnished. It is about all I can do with limited supplies. Hopefully I can get some images coloured and they will be ready to turn into cards when I can get back downstairs.

I decided that I would try my hand at paper piecing today. I have chosen to colour this lovely Hangar image with my Copics and then I have paper pieced her hat and shirt with some of the paper from the Basic Grey Sugar Rush collection. I love the end result. The polka dotted paper had the shading variances that are typical of Basic Grey paper and worked out perfectly to give her some shading. I added a tiny bit more with my copics to ensure that it was all in the right places.

The card has been put together using more of the Sugar rush collection. I have based the layout on a sketch over at The Sweet Stop. I have not added a sentiment at the moment as I am unsure of what I will use this card for. I hope that you have enjoyed looking. Stop back soon.
