Haute Couture

I love reading challenge blogs and seeing the submissions, but I never seem to get around to creating a project to submit myself.  This month over at Gingersnap Creations, one of the challenges is "Haute Couture" and I immediately thought of this double-page "tip-in" spread I made for a collaborative altered book with an online group.  The theme for the book was "Paris" and I was assigned the pages for haute couture/fashion.

These pages are a combination of collage, stamping, fabric,  vintage lace, ribbons, pearls, scrapbook papers, a sewing pattern tissue flower and even a little garter hook embellishing an Internet image.  It was a fun project to create and I love the colors and mix of textures.

So, for the first time ever, I am submitting this project for the Gingersnap Creations November challenge.  Check out more information on this challenge as well as the many other challenges on the Gingersnap Creations blog HERE.

Fantastic piece. I've always loved the lady in the coat and scarf stamp. She's so mysterious.

Good Luck!
