September Fashion Challenge - WINNERS!

Post by blbabe1234 »

What's in fashion for September? Flowers! Basically anything that has a floral pattern. It can be large flowers. It can be small flowers. AND...flowers are being paired with another print. Prints such as polka dots, plaids and animal prints - to just name a few.

Here is my example:

Image

My flowers are 3D stickers, layered and clustered together. And my "other" print is the brown pattern paper. Some might call it "graphic art" style or even "abstract".

So, for my challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to create a project using flowers somehow (either in pattern paper or as an embellishment - like I did) with one other print. Your choice of "other" are the following
  • Tartan (plaid like)
  • Reptile or Animal Print
  • Retro-Style
  • Graphic Art Prints
  • Abstract Prints
  • Plaid
  • Polka Dot
Please let me know which your "other" print is, and how you are using the flowers (if its hard to see). Paper, Digi, Cards, and Crafts are all welcomed. Please link the project to either here in the thread or place it in the gallery (there is a spot that has been created for you). One random winner will receive a $5 GC to ACOT. Please submit by September 30, 2013 at 11:59PM CST. Any questions - please ask!

And have fun!

The flowers don't have to be paper do they? Can we use premade ones like petaloo for instance?

Yes...your flowers don't have to be made of paper...anything that anybody would call a "flower" works!

Dumb question - is stripes considered plaid?

Its not a dumb question...and no, stripes aren't considered plaid. Stripes are usually just vertical or horizontal...or diagnol.

Plaid is more like stripes that are both vertical and horizontal:

And Tartan is plaid-like...but more diagnol, like this:

Here's my entry. I paired my flowers with polka dot washi tape. See why I had to ask about stripes versus plaids (I had already lined a piece of white paper up with my striped washi). My polka dot washi in the end saved me :inlove:
