Using Doiley on Layout


I'm sure I've shared some tips before on using paper doiley to mask, to create fan, borders and flowers liked the one in above picture. Don't you think that using paper doiley on layout can easily add a little feminine touch to it? I just love how it makes a layout looks so feminine with a little vintage touch to it. If you use colours of distress inks such as "antique linen", "tea dye" or "old paper", it will give a fantastic distressed vintage look to it.

Below are more ideas on how you could use paper doileys on your layouts or projects.


In the picture above, I've also use the fan folding technique to fold the paper doiley and ink it's edges with distress ink. I've add the doiley to an end of a ribbon strip with a button.

I've also used the left overs of the paper doiley, the "circle", and ink it's edges with distress ink and use it in the design of the layout.

I'll share the complete layout tomorrow. In the meantime, try to get your hands on some paper doileys and start playing! Have fun!

You always take everything to the next level--great use of doilies by distressing and folding them into flowers. Happy New Year!

That looks great! I can't but wonder: do you stamp and distress the doily before or after you fold it?

Irene Tan aka Scrapperlicious said...

Hi wintam,
You can either ink and stamp first or later. But I personally prefer folding it first to avoid the messiness.
