Hello fellow crafty friends! I have a fun paper piecing tutorial for you this week. This is one of those super easy techniques that can add a big impact to all of your projects.

paperpiecephoto1First ink up your image and stamp it on to your blending cardstock.


Then colour your image with which ever medium you choose. I used my copic markers, then prisma pencils and gamsol to add depth and the end.


You’ll need to ink up your image again and stamp the areas that you want to paper piece on to your design paper. I like to stamp a few times in case I have any mess ups.


This step is not necessary but i like to add a bit of depth to the parts i want to paper piece, just by using a copic and colourless blender. I used a blue copic similar in colour to the design paper.

paperpiecephoto5Again here, I just used a neutral grey and colourless blender to add depth.


Now your ready to cut out the selected pieces with a craft knife or scissors. when finished, turn over the pieces and apply glue.

Hope you all enjoyed!
