Lots of Pieces

I normally just show photos of my finished work, but today, I thought I'd share some before and after photos.

Many people are unfamiliar with what exactly a paper piecing is. A paper piecing is a combination of many different colors of cardstock shapes, that are cut out, and pieced together. Before they are pieced together, each piece is hand detailed. Once all of the pieces are glued together, the piece is ready for your scrapbook pages or handmade cards.

My favorite part of the process is the detailing, right down to the tiny details in the eyes. The pieces take on their own personality, with each individual crafter's style. Here are a couple of before and after photos of some sets I had worked on today:
