Julia and Paper Piecing
Reading has always been a passion of mine. I'll read anything. Be it a toothpaste box, great book, The Good Book, blogs, newspapers, magazines. You name it and I'll read it. I've had the urge to re-read the Harry Potter series for, well, we won't go into what time around it is for me and Harry!
One of our talented design team members, Danni, from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, did a tutorial on paper piecing. You can see it at the Store's blog, Follow Your Heart. Since it's something I haven't done before, I thought I'd give it a try. Julia from Rubber Romance was perfect to paper piece. The papers are from the Abstract Pack from Dovecraft, only available in the states from Susana! I followed Danni's tutorial and I think she came out fabulous! And other than Julia's skin the the floor and the distressed wall behind her, everything on the front of the card was paper pieced! I used the sketch from Stamping Vacation's Just Sketchy sketch and loved it. Thanks, Danni, for such a fun stamping evening!
Now, I'm off to start Chapter 1 of Book 1 of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone!
