Wow, I learnt a new technique recently called Paper Piecing for Scrapbooking and I thought I need to share this with you.
This technique is quite simple and can be as complicated as you want to make it. It depends on the stamped image that you choose to use.
This is the link to where I learnt this technique.
What is paper piecing?
If you have never heard of paper piecing and if you don’t’ know what it is, then stay tuned and I’ll explain…
When you hear the term “paper piecing”, people mostly think it’s a quilting technique however it can be used in your scrapbook layouts and card making.
When using this technique, it can give you an effect that you can’t necessarily get when using markers or pencils because you are using patterned paper.
Let me share how I created a patterned flower.
I started by stamping an image onto “plain card stock” in this case I used white daisy card stock and then stamped this image again onto patterned paper (B&T) or card stock.
Then I started cutting out the pieces I wanted to use from the patterned paper. I use micro-tip scissors for my fussy cutting as they are super sharp and have a great pointed tip for all those intricate pieces.
If you would like to know more about these scissors, please take a look here.
Once I had cut out all my pieces from the flower and leaves, I stuck them onto the image on the white daisy card stock.
As a case in point…
On this scrapbook layout, I used the paper pieced flower to add another dimension to my layout.
Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest project and I hope you enjoyed seeing this paper piecing for scrapbooking technique.
I’d love to hear if you have tried paper piecing too, so feel free to leave me a comment.
