March Flying Unicorn KOM - Putting on the Ritz!

I am thrilled to share these layouts with you that I did using the March KOM and addons.  We are all about fashion this month and this kit is great for fashion inspired projects but its also versatile so that you can make any kind of project.  The mix of papers is really outstanding, I loved the Kanban paper that I used on this layout - perfect for this wedding layout.  Note that the butterflies and flowers are actually silver foil and they picked up reflected colors when I photographed.  The silver is so pretty, but it acted a bit like a mirror in this photo.

The Flying Unicorn takes great pride in bringing you beautiful papers from all over the world and this month we are so excited to introduce you to Inkido papers from Sweden.  I really loved working with these soft pink colors, so perfect for this layout of my grand-daughters!

I love this picture of my brother and me, it was taken in Verdun, France where my Dad was stationed in 1951-1954 witht he US Army.  The base paper is Inkido that I masked with Prima masks and Glack Magic Glimmer Mist.  The scalloped paper is BasicGrey Little Black Dress collection that I fussy cut.  I diecut the swirls using a Sizzix die.   The flowers are a mix of felt and fabric flowers.  I love the Eiffel Tower chippie, its a Pink Paislee House of 3 design.

I've saved my favorite thing from the kit for the last, and its the Off the Page project!!  This is a 17" tall wooden dress manequin that has a stand so that your beautiful creation will stand on its on.  Isn't this just soooo sooo fun?  I dressed my mannequin in papers from the BasicGrey Little Black Dress collection and black tulle from my stash. 

My design was inspired by this gown created by Christian Dior.  He is the designer that I decided to use as my fashion muse this month.  I think this gown is divine!!

 I hope that you will join us at the Flying Unicorn this month.  We have so many fun challenges going on!  In addition to the monthly challenges we always have, we're having our Haute Couture at the Flying Unicorn challenges too.  We're designing fashion collections, making shoes, purses, all kinds of great accessories.  Come join us and maybe you'll win one of our fabulous RAKS!
