Tutorial Tuesday Revisited: The Lace Crowns

I got a lovely email from Jennie Alvernaz of The Rose of Athens Theater Company, who was excited to share these amazing crowns she made using my Lace Crown Tutorial from about a year ago.
She did an amazing job adding jewels and making the bases more durable with a ribbon or fabric ring adhered to the lace.

Fen is going to use the tutorial to make crowns for herself and her flowergirls for her wedding. I sure hope she send pictures too.  She had a question about whether a liquid leaf will work as well as the powered leaf I used.

I think that it will. It is basically the same thing that you make by adding the powdered leaf to the medium ( Glossy ModPodge, in my case). But my best advise is to use a scrap of lace to test it out.
All Laces are not going to react exactly the same so a short scrap of the lace you intend to use for your finished project is probably your safest bet.

Congratulation Fen!

And I really appreciate hearing from anyone who has enjoyed a tutorial or even anyone who has tips I should pass along. Thanks to all you Bloglandeers for your encouragement. I'm looking forward to hanging out here more often.

Soooo pretty. I got linked back to your site from somewhere else about the crown tutorial (can't remember where). I have a feeling I'll be making these someday, can't resist!

the new lace crowns are just wonderful, I especially love the bottom red one!

I love the crowns. I wish I could wear one every day (or maybe just a tiara). Do you think that a coat of spray varnish would improve durability? I always seem to have the things that I Modge-podge get a little sticky.
