PK Challenge with Paper Piecing

 Good morning my crafty friends

OK - I have to say I love this wall hanging
I usually make cards - so needless to say I have a ton of them uncertain when and if I will ever use them.
So I have been on a mission to create projects that will actually be used.
So when I saw the latest PK Challenge - out of the corner of my eyes I saw my latest Market Street Purchased - MSS - 14 Enjoy Today.  EUREKA! I really strive to enjoy each day but ahhh life has a way of getting in my way sometimes. Those who know me well, know I love coffee, hot chocolate, or a hot cup of tea mostly when it is cold and dismal outside.
So that is where the inspiration for this project came from.
I had to play with the paper piecing. I cut out 3 or 4 cups. kept playing with it and then like magic it finally came together in a way that suited me. The plate has a beehive pattern to it - it is from  K& Company. Everything is better with a little honey in it. I colored the liquid with my Staples permanent marker in a soft brown - lots of cream for me. The rim and the coffee cup handle - scraps. I went along the edge of the plate with my Gelly Brown pen. Twine from the Twinery Ink - Stampin' Up & Memento. I painted a cardboard with Delta Ceramcoat Dark Brown The paper strips and the rectangle that I stamped the sentiment on were cut from one 8X8 piece of DCWV paper - the Natural Stack. The rest of the paper came from my scrap drawer. If you go to the end of this post you will see a picture of this project hanging in my Kitchen. Let me know what you think.


    If you don't have room for it at your house....I would gladly take it off your hands LOL!
