Often, I will start with a main design of some sort. It could be a spiral, flower, heart, or other design. I then add and build the designs around the center piece.
Looking at this piece may be overwhelming. It may make you think that you are not able to do something like this. It is easier than it looks. That is one of the reasons I love it so much. You are just starting and creating one design at a time to create your masterpiece!
