Wizard of Oz inspiration!

We want to share a little OZ inspiration today!!

This is a picture of the original Ruby Slippers. See how dark they are? They were made using dark red sequins because of the Technicolor. Bright red sequins made the shoes look orange while dark red sequins made the shoes perfect!

Are you ready to follow the yellow brick road? If you haven't signed up yet for the Gala there is still plenty of time!!!!

Designer Tarina Tarantino created a beautiful Wizard of Oz line recently. I thought it was very inspiring!

I love this photo. It does not show off the jewelry very well but I love the stairs leading up to the Emerald city.

By looking up Wizard of Oz coloring pages on Google you can find several pages from an old coloring book. I have printed a few for the party!

I found Wizard of Oz scrapbook paper on ebay! Here is a peak at some of the paper I have that I am using in my creations for the Gala!

I hope that I have inspired you today! The Gala is on August 22nd!!!!!!!!

The official Wizard of Oz website is also really awesome!

We are still accepting participants if you would like to join!

Happy crafting, Lindsey and Twyla

Oh, no - perhaps I misunderstood? Were you supposed to be making something in order to participate? I was just going to write a post about The Wizard Of Oz on that day.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Heidi Ann, no, you don't have to make anything. You can just share your Wizard of Oz memories or show your collection of Oz memorabilia. You can even throw a party! Your idea is perfect and you're right on track. Twyla and Lindsey


Hi you TWO!!
Awesome paper Lindsey!! I'm still working on our ATC swap cards...and should also get going on the "Gala"
Hope you had a good weekend!

I have never participated in a gala or party before and I'm not really sure what to do...but count me in anyway.
I will do something on Fantasy & Fancy rather than my regular blog.

Natasha Burns said...

lori vliegen said...

The Ozzy wheels have been turning in my head all weekend! (They got stuck once, but The Tin Man was kind enough to give them a shot of oil!) The excitement is mounting, isn't it?! Yay for The Wizard of Oz! And yay for us! P.S Love the Tarina Tarantino collection!

Fantastic inspiration, I have no plans tomorrow evening so I think I'll come home and put the film on and be inspired!
