Wall-E paper piecing & LO


Well, I finally got around to doing some scrapping and I am really proud of myself! I found some drawings of Wall-E online then copied it to a document to enlarge it. After printing, I measured out the base of Wall-E, then cut and pieced those parts. To do the fine details, I flipped the printed image over and used a pencil to trace it on the back, then transfer it onto the appropriate colors. Wall-E is SU's Summer Sun, Basic Grey and Black. I used a circle punch for his eyes and a gel pen to do the details on his eyes and front. For the background, I used the clean eraser on a pencil with White Staz-On, then used a sharpener to make the eraser smaller for the stars. I cut a 3 inch circle from Bold Brights Blue and Green Gable, then cut a rough continent. I crumpled a paper towel and used the Staz-On white reinker to dab some clouds/mist on the Earth. The tag Wall-E is holding is from the goody bags we gave Al's guests and the name on the Journaling box is the name tag on the cookies we made for each guest. The rocket is from Pun Fun stamp set. Thanks for looking and I will try to get more done tomorrow. April
Update: I have had several requests for the link to the picture I used. Here you go! Wall-E picture

I meant to ask you. You wrote on group that you got the original image you started with on the web somewhere. Where was that? I can't find it anywhere. LOL
