Polka Doodles Week 5 - Paper Piecing
Friday, February 05, 2010
It's Friday so time for another Polka Doodles challenge. This week it's been set by Claire who's a great fan of paper piecing. so that's this week's challenge. Take your favourite image and paper piece it.
Digital images and papers are great for this. You just print your image a couple of times on your different patterned papers, cut them out and fit and stick them together like a jigsaw. I had great fun paper piecing Sherman the pig from the 'Back To Nature' CD.
To use a digi image with a pre printed paper pad, I use repositionable spray adhesive. First print your image on plain copy paper, stick your patterned paper over the top of the image with repositionable spray, put the paper back through the printer and print the image again. The image should now be printed on the patterned paper.
Hope you can join in the fun with us this week. Tfl x
