Pieced Elzy...

There are always flowers for those who want to see them. -Henri Matisse


The latest Elzybells Challenge was to use Paper Piecing...Elzy is the Perfect stamp image for cute patterned dresses pieced out of all kinds of patterned paper. I used Flower Girl and paired her with Ambrosia Paper from Basic Grey....her dress is actually a scrap of some older paper, but it worked perfectly with Ambrosia.


Tip: Keep small Patterned Paper scraps in a small drawer or baggie for paper piecing later!


Don't forget to play along with the Elzybells Bi-weekly Challenge...you have 2 weeks to play the next Challenge: A Sketch Challenge...Find the Sketch on Elizabeth's Blog
