You, Me, and a Cup of...


It's been a long time since I've paper-pieced, so I picked a pretty patterned paper for the mug (BasicGrey's PB&J) and went to town! I used one of my favourite sets from There She Goes called Perk Up because my go-to sweet treat is always some sort of coffee from Starbucks (or somewhere better if I can get it!). After cutting out the mug I added a little shading with my trusty charcoal pencil and blending stump. I feel like paper-piecing sometimes looks one-dimensional, so the shading really helps to make objects appear to be three-dimensional... At least I hope it does ;)

I made this card for this week's TSG172 challenge (click here) and it's also part of our 4th birthday celebration that's happening all month!

Thanks for stopping by... I know it's been slow here for the last couple of weeks. It always takes me by surprise how tiring school is when it's starts up again... You'd think I'd learn?!?

PS... How about a sale to celebrate??!!
