MAGICAL MONDAY - Paper Piecing

Gosh, I can hardly believe this is the last week of the month for August. Next week we will start a whole new month and we will have 2 new Guest Designers! I truly want to thank Karen and Ulrica for being such great GD's for the month of August!! (((applause)))

The one to be squealing who will receive the random drawing prize for participating in last weeks challenge is: Sari

Please send me your address at magicintheair@att.net so I can get this out to you. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

This week’s free image is "Gigi on tube". Yes, if you visited my blog in the early stages you might recognize this week's image. If you weren't around in the beginning then "Surprise"! Yes, Gigi is one pampered pig and she is just chilling and letting life pass her by as she floats about, in style of course!

(C) "Gigi on tube": (left click, then right click "save as" the larger image)

("Gigi on tube" is no longer available for free... I am in a process of getting a website up and going to make available to you not only these images, but many more originals by me in digital form and in the near future photopolymer as well... it's all in "the works"! In just hours a new free image will be released)

The challenge for this week is: Paper Piecing. If you don't have a clue about how to do this with a digital stamp I found this to be great you don't have to do it this way (I just googled this), but this might be a nice little piece of knowledge to have when working with digital stamps. Of course just the cutting and coloring is OK with me too!! So I say give it a try and join in the fun and share you creation with all of us! You know we are dying to see them!

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates in this weeks challenge and links their work back here is:


DESIGNER TEAM:



Curt's Blog




Leigh Anne's Blog




Nilla's Blog




Stephanie's Blog



AUGUST GUEST DESIGNERS:




Karen's Blog





Ulrica's Blog

Unfortunately Ulrica was unable to participate this week. She fell and hurt her hand/wrist and was unable to paper craft with Gigi. We certainly will miss her creation for this week! Hope you're healing Ulrica!



This first month I will be playing along here; then you can find my creations on my other blog Having An Art-A-Tack



I tried hard to place a sentiment on the outside of my card, but it just didn't fit on the way I wanted it to, so I just gave up and placed it inside. It says: "You're Sun Sational"

We would love to see your creations this week with this fun image... so snag Gigi and don't forget to come back and post your creation for us all to see!!

I love paper piecing--and I can't wait to run up to my room and make Gigi into a paper piecing--I'll be back later to post my completed picture of Gigi as a paper piecing.
