This week I have an article in the Shop and Crop newsletter. If you haven't already subscribed, go and head to Shop and Crop and sign up on the RHS of the main page. The newsletter comes out weekly and is full of tips on techniques, organisation and storage solutions, tools to use, ideas on what's hot right now, plus colour and sketch challenges.
Anyway, my article is on paper piecing. Me? Paper piecing? LOL. The article takes you through two examples of piecing. The first one simply uses the patterns in a collection of patterned papers to build a embellishment.
Love the DaisyD's Chloe Marie papers for this. Wonderful vintagey sorts of papers.
The second example I talk about is where you use a sketch of an image and create something. I take you through how to create this lovely elegant lady on the layout below.
The lady in the photo is my super elegant mother :)
OK, it's time for bed. I have a feverish child atm. I had today off work as we had to go and visit a surgeon (good news - no operation necessary! Yippy!) and Jamie has been sick and feverish since last night. Sigh. Winter! I think that I will have to take tomorrow off work too.
Have a lovely weekend.
