Experimenting with the Dahlia Fan Tutorial
I am so inspired by Juliet's Dahlia Fan Tutorial! I have many things I'd like to try with this technique. Over the weekend I experimented using scallop-edged circles to create the 'petals.'
I thought it would take 10 petals to complete the circle, but I think that was too many. So I glued a petal - north, south, east, and west - in the middle of my larger scalloped circle. Then I glued a petal in between each of those petals. So I used a total of 8 petals to complete this design. I think if I had not used the scalloped circles, 10 petals would have fit. Anyway, this was just an experiment. One of many to come!
