PaperArtsy 2016 Topic 13: Paper Piecing

I'm back with another PaperArtsy challenge. I've missed a couple of the previous ones - my "real" life was getting in the way of my artsy life. But, almost unexpectedly, my muse returned for the Paper Piecing topic.

First, I made several gelli plate prints which I then stamped with various stamps.

Then I sketched my template for cutting and cut the gelli plate prints into pieces which I then reassembled back into the original layout.

I edged the pieces with black distress paint and also added dashed line along the edges in white ink.

Finally, I added some words and glued the layout into my kraft journal. 

This is one of my favourite techniques, you might have seen me doing it before ;-)

Documented Life Project™ 2016: JUNE

I'm here with my June Documented Life Project pages. June's been a busy month for me, with less time (and energy) for painting. Summer is here officially, but this is my least favourite season because high temperatures don't agree with me. It's the season of little sleep and headaches...
