This post isn't about cake I'm afraid, but it is about layering. WARNING lots of photos.
When I first started crafting, money was tight and I was always conscious about how much each of my cards or layouts were costing to make. As a result I don't think my makes were very remarkable.
Layering is my new best friend. I'm still learning how to do it right. There are so many examples out there but I am starting to understand that I need to find my own way of doing it and I think I am starting to develop my own style.
This was my first big layering project using lace and MDF embellishments, frames and flourishes from Fernli Designs
I'm not good at leaving things as they are. I feel a need to explore the possibilities of a thing, so I end up fussy cutting and layering and looking at how to colour in order to find some thing new. I'm inspired by things that I find flexible. So MDF embellishments and lace that I can fussy cut are my two current favorites.
This one is fussy cut lace and flowers with lots of Fernli Designs pieces. Chicken wire, flourishes and frames.
This is a piece that I have just finished.
Anyone that knows me knows that I love my cogs. They are so versatile and they layer up lovely.
I still have a lot to learn and a lot to try when it comes to layering. I'm still finding myself and working out what goes together and what just looks a mess.
I have learned not to have chocolate cake near my crafty stash though. Leaves a mess :)
I'm off to play.
