I've created a picture where I have taken inspiration from 2 challenges -the Craft Barn challenge has the letter W and PaperArtsy challenge is paper piecing - looking through my dictionary for help, I came up with the idea of just using papers to make a window.
Looking through the pictures in Darcy's introduction for the PaperArtsy paper piecing, I was drawn to the Jofy, vase of flowers, I always love anything JOFY style, the style of her stamp artwork really appeals to me.

My picture was originally going to be a view out of the window but with the bunting added, I think it may be a view of a vase of flowers into a party room - just that you can't see the vase!?
Everything has been cut out of various paper - including the flowers, that came from one of the girls old magazines, they were meant to be used for a flower headband!
The bricks and letters were from stencils and the leaves were from a JOFY stamp.

It was quite satisfying being able to cut out all the main pieces and see what the finished picture would look like before they were all glued down. I always find the process of a picture evolving quite tricky when using mainly paints and stamps, it's the fear of the unknown outcome and not wanting to 'ruin' it!
