Welcome to the Make It Work!! Blog Hop at the Flying Unicorn

Welcome to the Flying Unicorn Make it Work! Blog Hop. We’re so happy that you’ve joined us!  The Hop starts at the Flying Unicorn blog, so if you didn’t start there, hop on over to this link and get started so that you don’t miss anything!  I’ll see you back here in a bit!

First I want to share with you this layout that I did just for this blog hop.  The photograph is from a Life Magazine Christian Dior fashion shoot in Russia during  1949-1950.  I love the contrast of the thin model dressed in high fashion contrasted with the peasant women.  I used Kaisercraft Chanteuse and Duchess collections from the Flying Unicorn store to do this layoutPink Paislee Mistables and the small letters are Tattered Angels Rockin' Renaissance Ir-resistables.  The scallop near the bottom is Pink Paislee Mistables fabric trim misted with Cadillac Pink and Cotton Candy Glimmer Mist.  All of the beautiful buttons are from the February Flying Unicorn kit except the pink one.



I used a Dusty Attic dressform that I first painted with white Gesso and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist Old Lace. I love how it turned out, looks a bit like satin fabric. The gold chandelier is also Dusty Attic and I painted that with gold Perfect Pearls.  The largest flower is a Prima Meredith Mer and the vine is Prima retton Purity.  I a lso used Petaloo Color Me Crazy flowers.




There is a reason that the Creative Team members are all featuring fashion on their blogs during this hop.  This is just a preview of the fun we are going to have in March during our Haute Couture at the Unicorn Ritz challenges!  Wait until you see the OTP project, it is so fabulous.  Hmmmm, what is haute couture, anyway? 

“The term "haute couture" is French. Haute means "high" or "elegant." Couture literally means "sewing," but has come to indicate the business of designing, creating, and selling custom-made, high fashion women's clothes.
To be called a haute couture house, a business must belong to the Syndical Chamber for Haute Couture in Paris, which is regulated by the French Department of Industry.  Members must employ 15 or more people and present their collections twice a year. Each presentation must include at least 35 separate outfits for day and eveningwear." (For more information see What is Haute Couture by David Johnson. http://www.infoplease.com/spot/fashionside1.html)
I can’t wait for the March kit reveal. You are going to love it because it is the best ever!! Just to whet your appetite, here are a few sneaks, can you hardly wait to see it?







The March kit will reveal on March 3rd at midnight.  Be sure to join us in the forums for some high fashion, Unicorn style all during the month of March!
