WIP - English Paper Piecing

 A few weeks ago I started a new project, English paper piecing. I'm using pentagons [5 sided shape], decagons [10 sided shape] and elongated hexagons[6 sided shape]. I was doing really well to start with but I seem to be in a slump at the moment probably because we've had some good weather and  I was doing other things.

Girl on the Rocks

The girl was a quick sketch on my tablet. The background was a photo of a rock formation which I altered in Photoshop. I think it looks more like water now.

You Have Mail


The doll was from a sketchbook [from a Russian doll project], she was put on a photograph digitally and then onto a vintage postcard, vintage stamps were added and text from another vintage postcard.

The houses were created on my android tablet then put on a vintage envelope.
