Paper Piecing with a POP

Little Cottage

I LOVE to cut out pieces of beautiful scrapbook paper and arrange them into whimsical and fun pictures and embellishments. I often will even use the pictures that I create in my children's stories as illustrations. I really find it so relaxing to create paper piecings….PLUS, it is such an AWESOME way to use up scrap pieces of paper that you may have around your home!

-}TAKE A LOOk{-    *   It really is easy to create embellishments to fancy up a scrapbooking layout or a card.

On this layout, I cut out some scraps of Basic Grey paper inked the edges with ClearSnap Color Box archival dye, and then used some of Helmar 's ZAPDOTS to make it really POP!

Here are a couple more examples of my creative paper piecings.

     Sometimes I use scissors but,  I mostly rip & tear my paper to get the look that I am trying to achieve.cat
