All Things are Possible

This challenge at PTI's Make it Mondays has reminded me how much I enjoy paper-piecing - it's great for those of us who aren't into the Copic thing or don't want to color all the time.  There are so many pretty papers out there, especially now with the miniaturized 6" paper pads! So here's another one for the challenge:


This set is the Violet one from PTI's Year of Flowers.  I used Graphic 45 papers from their Secret Garden collection (it's hard to find purples nowadays!  Does anyone have any suggestions for pretty ones?).  The background is a Hero Arts lattice cling stamp, as are the pearls.

ETA: I'd also like to add this to Moxie Fab World's Mixy-Matchy Style Challenge, since Cath now allows us to use cards made up to a month ahead of her challenges, if they fit the specifications.

Thanks for visiting!

LOVE your gorgeous paper pieced flowers, Lin! The combo of purple, green and yellow is so pretty!

I did find this pad at SSS: http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/servlet/the-48360/FEPAD033-DREAMCATCHER-PURPLE-DREAM/Detail it has lots of purple papers but some are glittery. Another one here: http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/servlet/the-56961/KC1013-cambridge-court-kate/Detail There's always the Hero Arts Designer papers too.

Hope ya find some you like! :)

Beautiful paper piecing, Lin! Looks wonderful on the pretty lattice bg - I used this yesterday (great minds and all that - LOL). Purple is a colour I don't use very often, so tend to overlook "purple" things. You might try PTI - they have two or three "purple" themed packs :)
