Details, details

When I design a project for a workshop, I always have in mind that not only has to look good but that is has to have some technique that the attendants can learn or master in the class. I have already commented in other post the difficulty on guessing what techniques or styles is going to be well received, so I tend to try and pack as much as it is possible. For this layout I choose by nestabilities flowers and creating a background paper lace by using all white card.

Bellow, you have a photo of the lace paper created by using five different edge punches -all by Martha Stewart, with the exception of the first one in pink which is by Fiskars-. By layering them it creates a soft effect, lace like, hence the name. I can not take credit for this technique, obviously, but I also ca not remember the first person I saw it used by, so apologies for that.

And here you have a detail photo of the flowers.

I really loved doing these layouts at the workshop and have had loads of fantastic comments when I have shown them off! Thanks Paula.
