Pat's challenge this week was a neat one. I have really grown to like this technique. Even though, I use it in the simplest manner. I'm still learning at it, but I do love the way it changes just a ordinary stamped image. So her challenge was:
Tonight's Challenge!! Make something using paper piecing!
I chose this cute little girl ready for a day on the beach. I know you all are wondering "this time of year" But we have had the nicest weather this past week. When the average temperature for this time of year should be around 72, the thermometer is hitting 85. The weathermen have promised us that it will change this weekend. I stamped her on white paper, then picked up the scrap on my desk to cut a piece for the little dress. I used chalk to color in her skin, and the little bit of sand. I used the Glaze pen to color her sand pail, shovel and flippies. The tiny little fake buttons on the shoulder seam of her little dress, was some I found in my little box of odds and ends. The little sparkle in her hair, on the sand dollar and her blue eyes came from some little embellishments that was in a kit for fingernails. They were just the tiny size I needed, to bring it all together. Thanks Pat for the neat challenge.
