TTC#1: Checkered Florals

Hi Friends,

Welcome to The Twisted Challenges blog. We are a monthly challenge blog with a twist in every challenge, i.e. we try and add an unusual angle that will get your creative juices flowing.

Ours is an "Any Project + Monthly Theme". Yes you heard us, we will not restrict you to what kind of projects you create. You can create Cards, Layout, Mixed-Media Projects, Home Decor, etc. just make sure you stay true to the Challenge Theme for the month and of course follow the rules of the blog.

The theme for this months challenge is 
"Checkered Florals". 

Here are some different ways of incorporating Checkered Flowers in your project from The Twisted Challenges (TTC) Girls. 

Saumya shows you how to use double stenciling to create checkered florals

Neha shows you how to create your own checkered background paper using Dot painting

Tejal shows you how to use paper piecing to create your checkered florals

Saumya has a second inspiration showing you how to use layered stamping to create checkered florals
