Less is More - Paper Piecing

Monday, 25 June 2012

I just love paper piecing so I had to join in this week at Less is More. It's a great way of using up little scraps of paper and looks so effective. I've used one of my favourite stamps by Hero Arts, paper pieced it and then chopped it up. I've kept it simple, one aqua patterned paper, a gem and a few drops of stickles.

Paper Piecing

Materials used - White square card blank, Free magazine papers, Hero Arts Whispers stamp, Woodware Jane's Script sentiment, Memento Rich Cocoa ink, Gem and Diamond Stickles.
