Parchment Craft Grid Work - Challenge!!

Hello, hello, hello!!!

Goodness, it seems like it's been forever since my last post, but in fact, it's only been a few weeks!!  Okay, let's get things started.....

Several months ago I purchased Kannikar Sukseree's latest book titled, Best of the Best Parchment Craft Grid Work and although I've not been able to make as many projects as I would like to, I did do something a bit different with one of the grid patterns that I liked, from the book.  The pattern I chose, is on Page 22 and I challenged myself to see how many different variations (aside from the ones already in the book!!) I could make. 





So, I began my self inflicted challenge by making one, of a collection of Vintage Ladies that I have, and for the image, I also incorporated my own parchment craft technique, "Etched Glass", which can be purchased by clicking on the image below. 


Okay, here are my beautiful ladies.....let's see if you can easily see the differences between each of the grid borders I made, from only one foundation pattern from Kanny's book!!!

This was a wonderful challenge, for me, and it was absolutely amazing just how many different borders I could create from just the one grid design!!  There are probably many more variations of the foundation design, but I was ready to move on to a new project, so I only challenged myself to do four.

I've shared my challenge with all of you, and now I would like to challenge anyone, who also purchased Kannikar Sukseree's Grid Work book, to take on the task of choosing one pattern from the book and see how many different ways it can be made.....or just challenge yourself to creating four new grid borders from one foundation pattern!!  

Who is up for the challenge?

Happy Parching...
