Craft This In Your Style - LC Edition

You may have seen “draw this in your style” on IG and other places. You take a piece of art and you redraw it in your own style. I have always thought it looked fun and I love seeing all the different interpretations of the original.
I thought we could bring it here to LC. Instead of the traditional “Draw” it will be a “Craft” in your style. Thanks for this suggestion @steiconi. All styles and talent levels are welcome to join in. The more the better. Don’t be shy! You can draw, sculpt, weave, make an amigurumi, embroidery, the sky is the limit!
I am thinking we could add a new image each month. If you would like to suggest an art piece or have us use one of your own pieces (even cooler!) then drop me a line and we can try to make it happen.
If we get at least ten participants for the month, I will come up with a physical prize drawn at random for one lucky winner.

Oh, I can.not wait to see what the amazing makers here come up with for this craft along! These first options are all so interesting and fun!

Would one need to craft each month to be considered to be participating in the Craftalong?

I am so glad people seem interested! I can’t wait to start this. On Friday I will announce the winner and we can all start our versions. Since we are starting a little late in the month, March will be quicker than most months.

I got good progress done on an item for a swap, so I should be able to recreate this masterpiece next weekend. Is anyone else working or in the planning stages for this?

I’m busy with several swaps at the moment. Hoping to have time to play with it later this month. If not, it may be April before I can do it.
