Birds Of A Feather

Yay! It's Monday, and that means a new challenge at Craft Your Passion! Our theme this week is Paper Piecing. We have a fabulous sponsor for you this week! We're being sponsored by the wonderful folks at AI Factory, who are giving away a digi prize to one lucky winner!

The generous folks over at AI Factory have given the DT a couple of adorable image sets to play with this week, too! Thank you, AI Factory!

For my project this week, I decided to try and make a corner bookmark. I hadn't ever made one before, so I was a little nervous about it. While it didn't turn out perfect, I'm happy with the results, for my first attempt! I used scraps of papers from my stash. The birdies are paper pieced and are from the Little Birdie Told Me set from AI Factory. I used a tea green Promarker to outline around the white parts of the birds. I wanted those parts to be white, but find that the white often gets lost in everything, if it isnt highlighted. The tea green Promarker is very light and works well to highlight white spaces. I used the branch punch by Martha Stewart to make sprigs of greenery for the birdies to nest in, and to nest the heart in. The heart is punched with a punch by Creative Memories, and is attached with foam mounting tape for dimension. The border is also punched using a Martha Stewart Punch.

I am entering this corner bookmark in the following challenges:
