Again I have gone down the Scrapbook route with this project.
These pictures of my mum were taken at the house where I grew up, She was entering an Easter Bonnet competition and covered an old sun-hat in fabric t match her dress before decorating with flowers and fluffy chicks. She was so proud she had these photographs taken and sent them t me as I no longer lived at home and was some 200 miles away in London.
I used a really eclectic mix of papers on this project the pink flowery paper is from shoes in bloom and the lovely subtle yellow check is from the bonus papers folder on Passion for Fashion. I printed off the images of ladies in hats from the waterfall folder on Passion for Fashion. The plain green paper was also from the passion for fashion CD, you can buy the CDs here
I did lots of matting and layering on this page and used pale pastels to give it a spring time feel. I added lacy borders to the papers using a Martha Stewart punch. I added a computer generated title, and printed out two panels with lyrics from the song 'Where did you get that hat' I fussy cut one of the photos of mum because the background left a lot to be desired (dad's compost heap and garden incinerator don't ask!) I also fussy cut a close up picture of the hat which is more an embellishment to the page. The gorgeous pearly swirls are also from Ooh La La creations check out their bling section of the website here .
I used some glittered flowers from my stash using neutral colours so as not to detract from the pictures and finally keeping with the neutral theme I added 3 wooden butterflies, because when I first started paper crafting mum always seemed to be drawn to butterflies when I used them.
So there you have it a page about my mum and her hat sadly she passed away in 2009 but she will always be a true fashionista in my memories.
