Doing some ODD Paper Piecing ! SOG Challenge

Stay tuned for my Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge post coming up after lunch (my time-lol).

****************************




I'm back again! Yup, you guess it with another suh-weet ODD creation! Ok, not so much ODD.....but def.
 sweet indeedy! This fortnight at Some Odd Girl we want to see you use

PAPER PIECING.

Oh what fun! I love paper piecing, but like many other things, I don't do it often enough!
I chose to highlite Sunny Mae. The reason I chose this image is because this is the first SOG image I EVA saw; & when I did, it was like love at first site (don't tell hubby!lol). Now, who was responsible for this love affair you may ask. Well, some of you may know her as Ann @ Raindrop Echo Designs --bwahhhaa, like who DOESN'T know of Ann! In fact it was THIS POST HERE that had me hopping over to the
Some Odd Girl Store & making some much needed purchases!
Thanks Ann. Thanks SOG. My bank account thanks you both! LOL



If you hadn't noticed, I paper pieced Mae's hat, bathing suit, shoes and towel. I created a sky & a beach with my watercolor pencils, baby oil & blending stumps as my medium. Her skin tone is done with my ever trusty copics. The sentiment is computer generated all by my lonesome & cut free hand to make some flags that are obviously hung on the bakers twine from Really Reasonable Ribbons. Seriously, I JUST got this stuff & I can't stop using it! haha


 

Do u have what we want to see at SOG!?! Then hop over to the challenge and get a load of the rest of the DT's creations for some more inspiration. Heck you too may be making a few 'much needed' purchases!! I promise I won't tell your significant others if you don't tell mine.

Can't wait to see what you got!
