......... as you can see, I've been at 'it' again........paper piecing that is! I knew his waistcoat (or vest for those without a British accent!) was just crying out for something a little different, so I pieced with paper from the Basic Grey Max and Whiskers collection. Now is about the time I should mention that I created this with a challenge in mind..........Little Red Wagon are calling for 'circles' on a project this week. I knew I wanted to use that great embossed 'clock' tag (from We R Memory Keepers) together with this image, so you can't miss the circle there. Add the circular embossing on the teal coloured DP, and tiny circle alpha's from Jenni Bowlin around the clock, and I think I have met challenge requirements!
I coloured mainly with Copic's and a touch of Prisma's, all DP's are Basic Grey as mentioned before. You can barely see from the photograph, but the ribbon, from Martha Stewart, has 'Happy Birthday' printed on there. I did a little 'fake' stitching around the edge i.e. paper piercing and white pen, as I was too tired to pull out sewing machine and thread!
That's it for now........I think for my next trick I will try something that may not be from Mo Manning (lol) or could even be a scrapbook layout (gasp!).
You never know............
