CASual paperpiecing

The challenge this week at CASual Friday is simply to paperpiece your image.  I had to play along as soon as I got home as paperpiecing is probably my favourite technique.  This is my second card, my first was a more complex image which didn't work as well as I thought it would.  This is really simple but works better.

Snippets of paper from stash

If you want to use up some snippets - play along here, and also join in with the weekly challenge to use up your snippets by joining Di in the snippets playground.  I must admit it's my first visit since Di took over from Jules - sorry Di - will try harder!

  2. Terrific card! So bright and cheerful - dare I say uplifting - and great use of snippets. Super to see you in the snippets playground with us - it's hopscotch right now as suggested by Maggie :) You'll see that things are a little unruly at times these days :( Have a great weekend! Di xx

  3. Love those colourful kites Tara, a great image for paper piecing!
