The Garden of Blue Flowers

These are some of Denise Ann's projects using the paper she designed 'The Garden of Blue Flowers' Collection

More to come

The Embellished Doily

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
Adore Friends

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
