Today at Practical Scrappers, we are sharing ten ideas for doilies! Yes, they are pretty and dainty and I make Alex take me to a local restaurant, Southern Belle's, at least once a month because they have THE BEST doilies and I always take all the ones on the table. (And the last time I was there, the hostess generously gave me tons!!) All of the doilies I use are from there. They are just so much better than craft doilies, in my opinion.
I must admit (even though I don't really want to) that I am not the happiest with this layout. There are things I LOVE about it, like the drops of mist, the doily, the title, and of course the super cute photos of this little guy. But this layout was rushed together since I was feeling under the weather and I was on a time crunch and I'm just not the happiest with it. I originally had several different backgrounds that didn't work out at all and I think the patterned paper kind of clashes. It doesn't flow properly.
But let me tell you, the doily!!!!!! I am so ecstatic how this doily turned out. I purchased watercolor paint for the first time a few weeks and I'm in TOTAL LOVE and want to use it on everything! For the doily, I simply painted blue and green on the doily, making sure not to get it too wet since it is very thin, and let it dry. I love how fast watercolor paint dries! It's amazing!
I may be redoing this layout sometime in the future and if I do, I will make sure to share it with you. I really just think this layout doesn't make the photos truly shine. Have you ever struggled with a layout or project you're not the happiest with?
