A Place To Start-August 2019 - A Crafty "Piece of Mine" - Bee Happy

Hello, Crafty Folks!
I am having a very difficult time getting back into the swing of crafting.  Maybe my mojo went back to D.C. with the grandkids.😊
This month's challenge at A Place To Start is
"A Crafty Piece of Mine"
Use Paper Piecing on your Project!
We are eager to see your creative use of paper piecing for this challenge.  Paper Piecing die cuts is my new personal challenge. It has been hit and misses on my practice runs but no doubt I will nail it down.  For this current challenge, though, I stuck with a very straight forward, typical application.
The image body is paper pieced.  The face and arm are the only parts of the image that were colored.  I added glitter to her dress and sealed it with a spray gloss.
I have had this cute little stamp set for a minute.  As usual, I had many ideas of how I wanted to use it and, as usual, none of those designs happened.  I am pleased with the outcome.  I stamped and colored grass and flowers for the bottom panel but the look was too cluttered so I left them off.

I must purchase more of the large frame sentiment dies.  I love the many possibilities they present.

Stop by A Place to Start and share your paper piecing masterpieces in our challenge!
