Some More Doily Ideas

Hi Ladies
I love taking classes & try to expand my square as much as I can.  On Saturday morning I took a class with Steph Devlin - she is a brilliant Colourist & is on the DT of  Prima, Webster Pages & more.

The subject of the Class was 'White + One'. Steph chose Lilac.  On this page there are 2 10cm doilies used as embellishments - they were then themselves embellished. The pics are not showing the background as white. My mother as a young girl is the featured photo.

Another class we did a while ago was a Wedding Double Spread - also using doilies- this time the 25cm square doilies were used as a background. Steph loves to use doiles (also so much easier than using a border punch) & I really love the way she uses them.

The second page shows how the design can be used for Heritage (my paternal grandparents) & for a modern approach, me sipping champagne.

The next examples are of 2 cards, also done in a class with Belinda, using the Once Upon a Springtime papers from Graphic 45.
The first card was a 3-fold using the Frames from the Collection with acetate. The front page used a strip from a 10cm doily as an embellishment under the green braid

The second card was a multi step with a strip from the same round doily to accentuate the right side of the front of the card. You could also have used some strip doily in place of the punched border at the bottom of the front of the card.

Now to work on my new Spring Flower papers - as you can see they did not get done over the weekend - the weather was too good to stay indoors
Bye for now
