Hello everyone! When I heard we were "going vintage" for this month's assignment I knew exactly what I wanted to do. You see, "way back when" when I studied fashion illustration in collage, one of my favorite classes was fashion history. I decided to take the assignment literally and make an altered piece with a 20's feel. Although the majority of this project uses "vintage" Collage Press collections, I did use a little of the newer CP lines as well.
The base of my hat is made out of a plastic cup flipped upside down. But anything you can find that has a good dome shape would work fine. Raw chipboard was used to make the brim
of the hat. Since it's flexible, you can bend it to the desired shape you like.
A couple leafy vines from the Vines patterned paper were mounted to raw chipboard, stitched and then cut out, before adhering them to the front of the hat. Chipboard elements, a felt flower, feathers and brown netting were all added to finish off this project.
Maya Road - Chipboard ring, buttons, felt flower and pin.
Fiskars - Border punch
Hobby Lobby - feathers, micro-beads, pearls and embroidery floss.
