a fun tutorial for you...

It's my turn today to show a technique on the Maya Road design team blog.

I bet you could guess...I chose to make a flower.
The official title is...

ALTERED TRINKETS BLOSSOM.

I made 42 of these guys for a charm swap for my friends @ Holiday Hideaway.



The complete instructions are all on the blog, along with some cool posts from other DT members.

Take a look...there's lots of ideas & inspiration posted.

Want to make the flower a charm?



Use a tiny bit and drill a hole, then add a jump ring...

I've said it before...but I'll say it again...

always look beyond what it IS...and think of the possibilities & what it COULD be.

That's how this idea developed.

Head over to the Maya Road blog.

You'll enjoy it.

*** NEWS FLASH***

We can start showing some of our Maya Road CHA projects...

I'll be back tomorrow with the first one...

Until then, I'm off to

make MORE art...
