I've been playing around with some neon paints trying to create a lace patterned paper.
Last week I spied this beautiful lace print via a pin from Leslie Shewring on Pinterest from Ideas Magazine.
I set out to make something like this for myself although I must admit, my results are slightly different. However, I still like the outcome.
I started with a lace doily from the craft room, a wooden rolling pin and some modge podge (1) I covered the rolling pin with modge podge (2) and rolled on the doily (3) trimming it to fit (4 and 5)
I coated it with a layer of modge podge to give it a little seal (6) and it was ready to go (7)
With a box lid as my tray, I rolled the doily covered rolling pin in a few different shades to create some wrapping paper.
I tried combining the colours on the same sheet and also cutting strips of different colours to act as ribbon.
I am going to try this project again and look for some different lace to create a more solid print as they did in ideas magazine. In the meantime, I still like the lacey, loose print created with the cotton lace that I used for this. It was fun to combine it with bright coloured twine - as seen above - a sneak peak of this week's Wrap it up Thursday.
