n., pl. -lies.
Doilies bring back so many childhood memories of my Nanna and her delicate china plates complete with lace doily and a beautiful spongecake covered in cream and fresh strawberries. However, the humble doily went out of fashion for quite some time and now it has made a welcome comeback. I wonder what my Nanna would have thought of all the gorgeous colours available in the Doodlebug collection?
I had a wild plan to completely cover my layout in doilies but for the life of me I couldn't work out how I wanted to achieve the effect so it was a bit of trial and error. Eventually I decided on the layered approach.
Firstly I had to work up the courage to actually take a pair of scissors to my doilies and cut them in half.
Using a ruler as a guide to keep things straight I laid each row down starting from the bottom row and working my way up. I simply ran a line of double sided adhesive across the cardstock to adhere the doilies.
After staring at my page for quite some time I decided that I didn't like the look of the completely covered background so I cut a large circle from a second piece of card and adhered it over the top. I was really thrilled with the result and all that was left to do was decorate.
