Challenge 16: Paper Tole
This week's challenge is Paper Tole. You are probably saying to yourself ... what exactly IS Paper Tole.
According to Kristine ... KL SNS resident expert, the "HOW TO" of simple paper tole: A duplicate of an image is stamped on a different paper, colored and carefully cut out. This duplicate is then mounted on top of the original with foam mounts, causing it to be raised (3D) and enhancing the natural shape. This is not simply paper piecing... it's popping parts of the image up higher.
It's been a loooooong time since I've done this and I forgot how much I like the look of this. I paper pieced most of Kiki and then popped her hair, headband and ice cream cone (though it's difficult to see in the picture)
So gather up the supplies and head off to KL SNS to participate in this weeks fun Challenge.
