FAUX PAPER PIECING - A NEW TECHNIQUE AT SHELLY'S IMAGES

Do you love the look of perfectly paper-pieced projects but couldn't be bothered by all that extra printing and fussy cutting?

If you answered "YES, that's me!" this tutorial is for you ...

FAUX PAPER PIECING 

STEP ONE

Print your image onto patterned paper :
(TIP : an all over pattern in lighter colours achieves a better final product)


STEP TWO

Colour your image in your medium of choice:


STEP THREE

Create and embellish your card.



That's it ! You're done!

How easy is that?!

I hope you come back and show us what you've made using this technique.
