Pieced Zine

These little bears are so cute (copy right Stampin' Up). I created masks for the bears after I stamped them on my white card stock. I covered the bears with the masks I cut out. Then I used my home made cloud template to create the sky. I used the direct to paper technique to the grass. I looked through some old magazines and found some interesting textures in advertisements for their clothes -- using the Pieced Zine technique from the February 2010 TJ newsletter. Boy Bear's cargo shorts were from an ad for cables inside very large tubes. I colored the bears and highlighted Girl Bear's dress with my Copic markers. To create the lace on the side I punched the edge on text weight paper (not an easy thing for some reason) and then ran it through my crimper several times to help break up the fibers in the paper. Look through your old magazines and see what you can find for this fun technique! Enjoy your week!
