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...


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.


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...
