Here are the details for the Week # 1 Challenge...
Have you tried paper piecing?
Paper piecing is a technique that scrapbookers have been using for quite some time. You can create unique page embellishments with this technique. It is created by using patterns to cut out parts of an image from different pieces of paper. When they are reassembled and glued back together, you can now have an original accent for your layout.
Aside from having original and unique embellishments for your pages, it is also an inexpensive alternative for scrappers on a budget. It's a great way to use up your scraps and create something new.
- Creativity is the key and sky is the limit. There are no restrictions on what you can create.
- The only limitation is to use at least 3 photos on your layout.
