Wow, it feels like forever since
I last was able to Craft!!!
My sunburn didn't allow me to lift my arms up
even a few inches
But now I am back,
determined to get the ball
In my best Ricky Ricardo voice...
"Jessica, you got a lot of catching up to do"
So tonight I made a list
to help get me back on track.
The list started with my personal
commitments and DT responsibilities!!!
The first project
I wanted to complete
Fresh Brewed Designs
going on now until midnight on July 16th
during the Countdown to the HOT Hop Party
We were given this adorable image
to play with
The sentiment is
a Unity Itty Bitty
which will soon be added
to my online collection
How I Paper Pieced my images:
I started by first resizing my image in a MS Word Document.
I then pasted 4 images upon the paper
all of equal size and played with
the placement a bit to be sure they
were spread apart enough.
Then I chose my papers.
I started with a basic 8 1/2" X 11"cream card stock by Recollections.
I then adhered 4.25" squares of Kraft card stock, teal dp and dark brown dp from Crate Paper Portrait Collection to the cream card stock.
It looked a bit like this before being loaded into the printer:
A little fussy cutting, my trusty Glu Glider Pro, some Zig glue,
a bit of detail with my Water Color markers,
a tad sprinkle of Martha Stewart Tinsel-Garnet
A finished project!
Don't forget to Hop with
It's gonna be HOT!!!
