I can't believe that it's been a whole week since my last post, but this week has just flown for me. I've worked four out of the five days as we are a staff member short at preschool, plus I've helped to interview applicants for the job vacancy that we have, so I'm worn out and ready for the weekend! Last weekend I was equally tired as I spent eight hours on the Saturday fundraising for the preschool at the local carnival, it was really windy and we only made £100 all day, but it was more than we would have got if we hadn't done it so it was still worth it.
It's my turn over at
this week to host the challenge and I've decided to go with
Paper piecing and piercing,
now there's a tongue twister if ever there was one!
I love paper piecing, and it used to save me no end of stamped out images, as if I wasn't happy with my colouring it didn't have to go in the bin if I could paper piece over it lol! That doesn't happen very often now as I'm a bit of a perfectionist and try to improve on my colouring continuously, but occasionally I still like to paper piece just for the different look I get from it - especially with all the stunning papers to be used out there, you can't beat a beautiful patterned or textured DP to jazz up an image.
Anyway, I digress as always, here's what I came up with:
Go Kreate shaped card die
Nesties Fleur de lis die
LOTV image Milly flower power with paper pieced shoes, leggings, dress, and flower
TH Butterflight die
Magnolia papers and doohickeys - tag and peony petals
SU Baja breeze seam binding
Hobby house gems
Marianne creatable rolled flowers
