Friendship Swap Doilies

Here's the doily I made for the Swap.

I first sprayed the doily with Tattered Angels' Honey Dew Mist glimmer mist. I wanted a very light mist so that the embellishments can stand out against the background. And I used TA's Tattered Traveler mask, as the round shape of the compass is just nice for the doily! :)

I then used some Olive Vine mist for the chipboard words, and applied Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint in Tattered Rose to alter the chipboard frame.

I put these together and placed it on top of a journaling label which I had adhered to the left of the doily.

I then layered a couple of flowers onto Prima's new Rose Trim lace. I had sprayed the white Innoscence flower with Pink Bubblegum mist to suit the colour scheme of the other embellishments.

I placed this floral stack on one corner of the frame, and adhered a strip of lace just above the chipboard word.

I then proceeded to decorate the doily with more flowers and leaves. The white Athena flower and the leaves have also been sprayed, with TA's Irridescent Gold mist, for a bit of shimmer.

Add the little Hambly birdcage and a die-cut butterfly (also sprayed with Iridescent Gold mist), and your doily is done! I used leftover scraps to punch out the butterflies, so no wastage there. :)

Here are more views of the doily ....
