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.

WEEK 1 - HAUTE COUTURE
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.
