Cramfest Home Ec Class

Good Afternoon, and welcome to Scrap U's home economics course. As many of us of know Home Ec can consist of many things, such as sewing, crafts, cooking, etc.
This year I would like us to focus on FASHION.
Each day we all make a conscience FASHION decision. Whether you consider yourself to be a fashionista or just a plain Jane, we all have a sense of personal style. Fashion is All about texture, colors, and freedom of expression. And in this year's Home Ec class we will focus on just that, our individual sense of style.

For example: My personal sense of style is modern eclectic, with a bit of vintage flair, and very clean lines. I am not afraid of color and have a very colorful wardrobe, I love to accessories, I have a lot of handbags, & shoes to accommodate them. This translates also into my Scrappy Style, I love to bright bold colors, mixing modern & vintage patterns, & I love to embellish.
In my layout I used tons of fabric (felt flowers, fabric leaves, lace border, canvas tag) to create lots of dimension and texture. I have a stitched border, pearls & a string of bling as my sparkle on this layout. The Prima flower centers, lace border, & kraft envelope add the perfect amount of vintage vibe to the layout.

Your assignment is to create a layout based on your own personal style. I want to see YOU reflected in this layout (this doesn't mean you have to scrap yourself). Are you edgy meets Audrey Hepburn's classic elegance, or are you contemporary/traditional like Mrs. Kelly Ripa?
Go for it ladies, let's see you work it!!
- Stitching: faux, machine (any kind will do)
- Fabric (of any kind)
- bling/sparkle
All layouts for this challenge need to be newly created for this challenge. You need to upload them to the correct gallery folder by Sunday August 29nd at midnight PST. The gallery folder "Week 3-Taj's Class".
Any layouts not in the correct gallery by the due date will not be graded.
