In our announcement yesterday for The Gauntlet, we promised to tell you a little more about Lauren from Edge Metal Elegance.
Lauren has been a customer of ours for many years, and we think she does some awesome work. That’s partly why we chose her to be the featured artist in the first Gauntlet.
But wait, there’s more……….
Even though she is the first to be featured, she will not be eligible to win. <gasp>
So, what is it she will be doing you ask? Good question. Because we think she does some awesome work, and has some great ideas, she will be passing some of those design ideas on to you.
In a new feature here on our blog, every couple of weeks we will post a new design idea for you to have fun with. Sometimes we will just give you picture and a supply list and let you have at it. Sometimes we will make kits available, and sometimes, for the more advanced designs, we will also make new tutorials. We will call this new feature “On the Edge Designs”
So without further ado, here is her first design idea for you.
