Counterfeit meets hats

Counterfeit mini-challenge #1 is up and this time around, we are asked to be inspired by a selection of the most gorgeous hats!

Do you love hats? I do. I wish we still lived in an age when hat wearing was normal for special occasions and not just something for weddings. I can't remember the last time I got to wear one. *sigh*

I looked through all the hats and chose this photo as the one I wanted to use for inspiration although any of them would have worked - each of the pictures had something so appealing to it.


I really liked the pearls, the vintage looking colours, the twisted layers and the soft look to all those flowers and fabrics.

Grabbing my May kit, Whispers, I took out cardstock and the tissue paper I'd included and then because I was tying this in with a LOAD prompt to use "trash" I took out my selection of Prima packaging that I've been collecting for some time and went to work with layers and distressing.


I decided to use the tissue (which incidentally comes from Starbucks so another "trash" find) to make a scrunched flower with pearls in the centre to mimic that wonderful creamy coffee hat there in the corner and while it looks nothing like the hat in the photo, I'm pleased with how it came out.




Which hat will you be inspired by? Don't forget to share.
