Paper Piecing & Pennants

Has there ever been a technique that you are slow to try out?  For me it is pennants!  I think they are so darn cute on other folk’s creations, but I had never incorporated them into my own…till today!

blessed birthday

Materials and details:

  • Surprise Juniper and sentiment from Starving Artistamps;
  • StazOn Jet black;
  • Designer papers from: Cosmo Cricket, Chatterbox, DCWV, and My Mind’s Eye;
  • Punches from Martha Stewart, EK Success, and $ spot at Michael’s;
  • Foam tape and Liquid Pearls (lemon yellow); and colored pencils;

Juniper’s dress and headband are paper pieced from a yellow patterned paper with white pin dots.  The pennants were cut by hand, inked and sanded from the same paper.

I love her party shoes!  Did you have little mary janes when you were younger??  I only had black ones—but my daughters have have many colors through the years—FUN!

Thanks for stopping by, today!
