At our February demonstrator gathering, we all learned the cute Spirelli technique, and I made that our Product Challenge for the next month. My team members totally outdid themselves! Look at the clever and creative ways they used this easy string-wrapping technique to make completely unique elements for their projects. Not familiar with the technique? See a quick photo tutorial here.
Christine made this big flower one above, by layering two different sizes of scalloped circles together. Carol made this one below with a double layer as well, the center one being Spirelli-wrapped around a flower shape instead of a scalloped circle.
Penni added a tiny Flirtatious Designer Series Fabric flower to the center of her Spirelli medallion on this Hello, Doily card. And Cristy went NUTS on her Creativity Journal, adding Spirelli technique variations all over this page in her 5x5 chipboard album. Love the quote she used--"We all need empty hours in our lives, or we will have no time to create or dream."
I was so pleased to see everyone really sink their teeth into last month's challenge. I can hardly wait to see what my clever friends do with the next one--use a household item in your project! Wax paper, aluminum foil, wallpaper, coffee filters, hair gel--you name it! Spring cleaning and "upcycling" is the name of the game. What's the weirdest thing YOU have ever incorporated into a project?
