Hi everyone, Judith here. I wanted to share a tip with you all about adding more dimension to your paper piecing. This is by no means invented by me, but it is easy and you can get some great results 🙂
Go ahead and colour and cut all the individual pieces for your project. Here are mine all laid out.
(Sorry about the poor quality photo.)
For this technique you will need a soft mat (I use an old bit of foam) and an embossing stylus tool.
Next, you are going to use the stylus tool and run it over the back of your paper piece in small circular movements. You will begin to see your paper curl upwards – the smaller your stylus point the more curl.
Your pieces should look like something like this.
Finally, assemble your card.
Here is a close up of that lovely dimension 🙂
This technique works even better when you have several layers. Thanks so much for stopping by.
