Royal Slipper of The Dauphin Of France.

When this publication came out I was excited to get my hands on a copy. Little did I know how inspiring it would be! This special publication by Stampington And Company is chocked full of wonderful creations celebrating the lifestyle and opulence of Marie Antoinette the Queen of France. It is filled with rich textures, vintage silks, and gorgeous millinery intricately applied to art journals, cards, books and more. I found myself very inspired and pondered over the many ideas in the book to make.
At the same time I was offered the Guest Designer spot for the month of July over at Vintage Flair and I was so excited to get started. I knew I would just have to make one of the creations featured in the magazine for the required projects due from the guest designer that month.

I received my complimentary supply kit from Vintage Flair and poured over all of the wonderful pieces trying to decide what to create. Then I came across the most beautiful dusty blue scrapbook paper that reminded me very much of a dress that Kirsten Dunst wore in the movie "Marie Antoinette". I grabbed my issue of Marie and spotted the perfect project that would highlight the beauty and elegance of the Dauphin Of France.
