Earth, Fire, Air and Water

Earth, Fire, Air and Water was the theme for the Hairdressers competition my daughter was asked to be a model for. Her hair style and head piece was a magnificent spiderweb design and working with her hair designer she had to choreograph a dance to perform on the stage wearing the costume and head piece... very tricky it was huge. We were very excited when they won 3rd prize against some very talented designers and dancers.

I wanted to produce a page that would capture the moment for Bec and this is it.

The paper I chose fitted perfectly with the theme; the black textured card had a handmade feel to it and had leaves embedded into it which added texture and depth to the page. 

In Bec's hair was a big hairy toy spider which she named Harry and it became a pet of sorts after the event. So I wanted to include a cute little spider on the page to remind us of him. Using silver thread from DMC and a fine sewing needle I created a spider web over the page writing the words that I felt were some of the keys elements of the days performance and event; Hair, Dance and Lauren who designed and created the hair. The lettering for the title of the page was cut out using a Cricut die-cutting machine using card stock in colours associated with the words and making 'Earth' the standout word as this was the theme subject Lauren had chosen for her creation.

Thanks for looking at this post and I hope to have more  for you to look at soon.
