Paper Toile is the art of making 3D pics from flat images by layering and popping up pieces of the image. I've seen some gorgeous work done using Paper Toile with stamped images so I gave it a try with this wonderful elderly man that has fallen asleep in his chair while attempting to keep up with the local news stories. You can find I'm Not Asleep Wrinkley here.
I stamped my image onto several pieces of scrap papers (some are from a Simple Stories Generations paper pad) with the intention of paper piecing a base for layering other popped up pieces. I didn't add any colored shading to my pieces but I did run a black marker tip around the cut edges to keep the white paper core from showing.
Layers of Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Collection "Dressed To The Nines" patterned paper and Bazzill brown, blue and kraft cardstock form my easel card. A border of American Crafts decorative ribbon is finished with a bow. A sentiment from the I'm Not Asleep Wrinkley set is layered over cardstock covered chipboard and lines the side of my image. Die cuts from a Sizzix Original red Eyelet Washers #1 die are held with We R Memory Keepers Toasty Tin Large Eyelets and include My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Union Square "Beautiful Day" twine. A QuicKutz Checkered Goosebump embossed my corner triangle while a wonky warped clock charm hangs from a Creative Impressions mini metallic blue paper clip.
