August 2012 Heritage Challenge *WINNER*

Post by killarney_rose » Wed Aug 01, 2012 3:41 am

Can you believe it!!! It's August! Time is flying by this year! In 45 days we start our fall calving. WOW!

As I cruised the gallery this past month Brandi posted some photos from her husband's side of the family that were turn of the century. One of those beautiful photos had a classic Victorian style hat. I'm not sure when we lost the need for hats as a everyday fashion accessory but we did. Now we wear hats more from the causal side of our dress. And of course the idea popped in my head to do a hat challenge as it relates to fashion.

Your challenge should you accept it is to create a layout or card containing at least one of the three things listed below!

1) An individual(s) in the photo should be wearing a hat.
2) Use a hat as an embellishment.
3) The paper you choose to use has a hat.

Your photo must be 10 years or older. Your layout/card must be a new creation! Please choose heritage papers appropriate to age of photo as to your definition of what is heritage.


** You can not use a hat in your layout which represents Graduation, Halloween, Santa Hat, a ski or hat for a snowy day, baseball caps, visors, etc.**

;) We are talking fashion here. Now if your like me in the world of cattle men wear caps and/or hats and the hat is a cowboy hat. Texan men will tell you real quick a cap (baseball type) is not fashion but a Cowboy hat is a whole different matter .....and LOL they won't use the term fashion either. And like us with the color of white there are certain rules about a Cowboy hat. A straw hat is only worn between Easter and the first cold snap which is usually in our state in October. A felt hat is worn after Labor Day up until Easter or to a more formal affair. How the hat is steamed and creased is a very personal choice for men and is a statement of what's "in" and/or personal preference. Generally, once they choose their style they rarely change it. And by gosh don't ever take a hat or cap off a man's head in a jester of fun!!!! So yes if you have a photo of a man in a hat please if it fits the challenge whether a cowboy hat or other type of dress hat then please entire it in the challenge.

To help you along the way if your clueless as to where to find hats. When it comes to paper Graphic 45 has some beautiful papers with hats for both sexes and I found papers from Kaiser Craft Sears and Son line has some hats.

Embellishments: In the store is a set of stickers from Jolee's. And I had to have them!!! Cute Cute!!!

Image

Still in need of a hat! Well I'm here to help! I have a Quickutz die that has a hat in the style of the sold black one above just without the feather! Another similar hat to the die is the first example below. Give me two cardstock colors and I'll make one.....need a second or third and I'll make them, too! Then off in snail mail to you. Send me a PM if your in need of a hat.

One can look through my gallery for examples of hats. My grandmother always wore one for business when she was Equipment Editor for American Home Magazine or a special function like my wedding. I must admit I have been loving looking at all the different hats my grandmother had before I was born! It was always her statement piece in her fashion accessories! I'll also try to do at least two other layouts with hats in them this month.

I've done tons of pages with hats and about hats! I still have plenty of old pictures with people in hats. I can do this one today but I can't post it until I can my scan-in-stitch software working again! Here's an old one I did. Image

:inlove: the hat!!!

:inlove: the layout!!

I still think how amazing it is we have forgotten about hats in our country but the English sure haven't. Reminds me of how Princess Beatrice's hat worn at William and Kate's wedding seemed to out do Kate's elegant dress in the press!

Last weekend when I was home, I helped my mom scan a bunch of family photographs from the early 1900's. Of course, I sent copies to myself, for future use. There were actually several of women (and men) with hats, since that was the part of the era's fashion. I chose this photograph because the cousin pictured here was portraying such a confident air. She was my grandmother's teacher, and the postcard was dated May 1, 1911. 101 years ago! My grandmother was 15 years old at the time.

Not just the hat, the SUIT! I know that hats were worn as sun protection, since sunscreen didn't exist, but why a SUIT? She is definitely in fashion.

Exquisite photo!!! It was amazing how common it was at the turn of the century to have a photo made as a post card to send to family and friends. What a treat to do this digitally! I am amazed I have no photos which were also post cards, I definitely would use photo corners and no adhesive to mount the photo if paper scrapping!

Laurie, this is a gorgeous layout!!!
