Some of my students have sent in photos of their first Star Flower carvings after watching my video lessons of the same name. Today, I’ll share their photos with you.
I love to see the first attempts of my students. Even better, I love to see how their skill progress as they learn and practice. When looked back upon later, those first carvings give evidence of how much they improve over time.
Here is the flower watermelon bowl I carved after purchasing your lesson just for fun. Also, I made the radish bouquet from your free lesson for a first communion. I will be carving watermelons for a graduation and a wedding in the next coming weeks. I am truly enjoying following your lessons and creating these beautiful work of art. It’s been very inspiring and I’m looking forward to many more carvings!
Your happy carver,
Because Iris mentioned her radish bouquet, I’m showing that to you, too.
If you have not yet seen my Free Radish Bouquet lesson yet, you can sign up for it on this page, or by clicking here.
The Star Flower Pattern is great for Pumpkins, too.
After watching my video lesson, and then seeing our blog post showing the star pattern carved onto a pumpkin, Anne Bennett shared her eye-catching version of it with her own added touches.
Thx for your dvd…so wonderful and well done and plain to understand. I did the star on a pumpkin at Thanksgiving time and carved a small hole in top and dropped a Dixie cup to hold roses and spread garland of silk leaves . My camera is so so so and I’m not a photographer …. as well seen. Don’t know if you can use this or not…but I would understand. thx Anne

I hope that you enjoyed seeing a sampling of my students’ first Star Flower Carvings on both watermelons and pumpkins. Maybe they inspired you, or gave you an idea that you can put to use. Or maybe you’ll think that you can do better? You’ll never know until you give it a try.
