Basically, this technique involves cutting pieces out from a design and layering them onto paper. Paper pieced designs can be used on cards and scrapbooking projects to add more dimensions into them.
Well, I have done a few pieces from patterns I have downloaded for free on the internet and used them to embellish cards and envelopes. Here they are. :)
Baby Boy Booties
Baby Girl Onesie
But this latest one I did I am really proud of. I think I outdid myself. Really. :)
I looked up printable coloring pages on Google, then picked out a simple image of a hot air balloon. And made a paper piecing pattern out of it. Cool, right?
Here's the original coloring page (Sorry I forgot to note of the web link I downloaded the page from). And beside it is my paper pieced version.
Yes, those are actually strings! :)
I have yet to decide where to use it on. But most likely, I'll put in on a card. Maybe a "Bon Voyage" themed one. What do you think?
