Finishing Up The Doilies

That's it. I have no more doilies. I only had one packet to start with and I had used four already so I had eight to decorate and here are the last two:




I think I'll mount them on squares of patterned paper as Christine suggests and put them in a frame, three groups of three with one square for some journaling.

I'd still like to keep on layering things up though. You don't really need the doilies as a base; a simple scallop punched circle would do, or a very simple circle and a pair of cheap scalloped scissors which is all I've got just at the minute:


It's a great way of using up older supplies and little scraps and its a good way of experimenting with combining colours. I'm going to use this one on a yellow and grey page I've got planned.

Today I'm Loving...how many of you I managed to hoodwink on Sunday with my creative statements! In the interests of open and tranparent blogging I now have to admit that the two true ones were.....
......the Downing Street one and the Fireman one. I did have that conversation outside Downing Street on a school trip when I was nine; and I did try to push someone out a window on another school trip when I was a teenager. Jacky was right. He was very annoying. I met him at a reunion not long ago and he said Isn't it great that I'm still alive and you're not still in jail. I had to agree.

:o) Somehow I knew that the fireman story was true. So funny...and it's great that he remembers it with a sense of humor too.

LOVE the doilies and layering effects you are creating, Sian!

Carrie said...

What do you mean, we don't have to buy a pack of doilies? Of course we have to buy a pack, buying new stuff is what us scrapbookers do best!
Although I may have a go at making one myself - just until I find a shop that sells them ;-)

Amanda said...

Your layered doilies look lovely and I'm looking forward to seeing what they look like framed - you will show us won't you?

Denise said...

I love,love those doilies,and I too am a tad dissappointed you are not an abseiler !x

Heather said...

Sian its the way you tell them!! I was completely unsure which one was the truth - they all seemed plausible/implausible so I gave up! I love your layered creations & agree that you don't need to buy doilies (but you can if you must) :)

alexa said...

Love your fireman's comment! Let's hope's he learnt his lesson - you probably changed his life! Great doily work too: your layering is beautiful.

Cheryl said...

Sian you are too good at fibbing lol love all your doily creations x

Amy said...

I'm loving how you photograph your crafty creations Sian, they all looks so lovely and will be fabulous framed together!
So, is the fireman still a pain in the neck? Mel's comment is funny - yes, it is disappointing to know that you really are not into abseiling, such a great virtual visual picture ;-)

Micayla said...

I love that those two were the truths - what brilliant memories to have :P And am so pleased it wasn't the salad cream! Yuk!

Oh, I was so hoping that you'd sail around the world one day and blog all about it!

NO! Scratch that! Can you imagine how little stash you'd be able to fit on a boat?! I'm gonna have nightmares just thinking about surviving with no pretty papers! x

Genevieve said...

Your doilies are just beautiful! I have so much catching up to do, so thank you for providing some much-needed motivation!
