Passion 4 Fashion...week 1

Good morning...hope your weekend is going well!

Well the Passion 4 Fashion competition has started at ScrapBoutique and first up is Haute Couture. 

The idea is that each week you interpret the style of fashion into your scrapbooking layout.

Haute Couture (or high fashion)- This category includes the very chic, one-of-a-kind, the custom-made and designer's collections.
Colours - Unusual and rare. 
Lines - Unusually layered, fitted to suit, very specific individual taste. 
Textures - Unusual and rare materials. 
Effect - One-of-a-kind, very unique, tres chic 
Needs of customer - Custom-made, designer's originals, very expensive.
Favourite Accessory - Coordinated, matching and custom made pieces.
Note: Notice the unusual layers, unique and one-of-a-kind designs. 

And this is what I came up with:

I wanted to create lots of different layers so layered black and kraft cardstock with dressmaking pattern paper then went crazy with some gesso and glimmermist. I then stamped the butterflies and hand painted them with shimmerz. I left creases in the dressmaking paper to resemble the folds in fabric.  The papers are from the first MME Lost and Found collection.

A close up of the background and stamping...

I embellished with items that you would find on a haute couture design like feathers, sheer fabric, sequins and pearls and have included a flower handmade from dressmaking pattern paper to add a one-of-a-kind touch.

To sum up the page...I think I have achieved a layout that shows unusual layers with one-of-a-kind elements, that is unique and has a custom made look.

Thanks for stopping by.
