Most of you know that I am doing a Place in Time paper Stack by graphic 45 calender pages. I have been looking at the graphic45 blog site on there calender series that different DT members had done. Also my good friend Suzanne http://cricutcraftinggrammy.blogspot.com teaches at her local scrapbookstore "Scrapbook Blessings". She had done a calender series for some classes that she taught. So I 've been looking at both sites and have take different parts of both and made my own.
On my July page I wanted a blue doily to put under some of the cutouts and chipboard pieces. Of course when you want a different color doily you can't find them. So I googled How to color doileys and I found this site http://charlottesfancy.com/2010 on coloring doilies with food coloring.
Here is what they look like after doing this teqnique. I also did some yellow ones but didn't take a picture of them by themselves. You will see them later on my August page.
I know that another crafter friend of mine said that you can also color them using ink refills. I don't have lot of inks since I don't do much stamping, so I found this much easier.
Here is my August 2014 calender page.
I used the blue doily that I had colored under the top right cutout and it made the blues in each picture stand out. I really like the way this turned out.
Thanks Suzanne and the amazing DT members on graphic45 blog on the inspirations to do this.
Later today I will be posting August page after I put the finishing touches on it.
Have a great day and be careful with whatever you are doing today.
