Anything Goes with a Twist - Paper Piecing

Hello Everyone, Sharon here with this week's brand new Challenge. The challenge this week is Anything Goes with a Twist. A Twist? you might ask, well the twist this week is Paper Piecing. Paper piecing is new to me. I've only created a few cards using this technique, so I've challenged myself as well. You may create whatever you wish. A card, layout or altered item...
anything at all, but it has to include paper piecing.

We have a fantastic sponsor this week, our very own Design Team Sister,
Cindy Leek. Cindy has generously gifted a very special prize package from

Here is my creation. I made it to give to my niece for her birthday. She is a huge Owl Lover. I simply painted  (2) 5x7 white artists canvas, the face and wings I drew a pattern freehand and cut them from card stock. The circles I used my 1" punch. And best of all, I used paper from my paper stash.

Enter your Anything Goes with a Twist project by May 21 by using the inlinkz tool below to submit you entry. We will choose a winner and post here.  If you don't have your own blog, feel free to add your project to our flickr group (see the link on the right).
