July’s Member Make Challenge blew us away! Annual Members crafted alongside Lia and created their own versions of our Ruby Rose project. We loved seeing all of the submissions flood in. The creativity you all brought to the challenge. . . Everybody did such an amazing job.
August’s Member Make Challenge: Advanced Icelandic Poppy Flower
Nothing says summer quite like “poppy.” (Even if “Iceland” doesn’t scream sunshine and flowers.) Their transparent petals catch the light and are a perfect bloom for our extra fine crepe paper. For this month’s Member Make Challenge, I showed advanced techniques that I’ve been experimenting with. Follow the YouTube video as I guide you through making this stunning and colorful flower. Put your own spin on the project by choosing different colors, adding your own personal touch, or creating a bright bouquet of them!
