The originator of the Embellished Doily is Christine Middlecamp – http://retrospection.typepad.com.
Her instructions can be found at her blog by doing a search on ‘embellished doily’
The following Embellished Doilies are my take on her idea:
|The Garden Chair|
|Lovers in the Garden|
|The Bird Cage|
|Gate to the Garden|
|The French Garden|
|The Collage Tag|
They are all done using, as a base, the papers from the French Garden Collection Cardmakers Pack. http://megsgarden.com which are 144x144mm square. The majority of the centre pieces are also punched from the Cardmakers Pack.
For these projects, I am using a small round doily with a 10cm outside diameter & a 60cm diameter centre. This doily is perfect for using a 3″ round or 3″ scallop punch for creating a centre out of patterned paper, transparency, plain cardstock or whatever you want your background to be. The doily will then have a beautiful design around the background. Foam mounts are essential to create each of the layers.
Had so much fun doing these - will have to do more using Denise Ann's latest Collection - the Garden of Blue Flowers.
Bye for now
